Figure 9.
Representative false-color images of dopamine receptor mRNA localization in the human midbrain at the level of the substantia nigra (SN). Also shown is a representative section labeled for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) mRNA, reflecting dopamine synthesis. The dopamine receptor transcripts encode receptors that function as autoreceptors. An associated summary diagram for the human midbrain is presented in Figure 8.
