Quick Reference

The lower part of the tegmentum alongside the substantia nigra, containing nerve cell bodies that release dopamine, projecting to various parts of the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex, implicated in emotional responsiveness and possibly, when overactive, linked to schizophrenia. See also mesocortical system. VTA abbrev.
