We studied how dopamine-transporter (DAT) levels influenced brain responses to apomorphine, a potent dopamine agonist, in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients executing a working-memory task. We found an inverted-U-shaped relation between DAT levels and striatal response to apomorphine and interpreted these findings as reflecting changes in striatal D2-receptor sensitivity. In future, multimodal brain markers may be useful for personalizing drug therapy in PD.
