Dopamine neurons in the DRN/vlPAG are electrophysiologically similar to VTA dopamine neurons, but distinct from serotonin neurons. Vasoactive-intestinal polypeptide is co-expressed in a subset of these dopamine neurons, typically those positioned more dorsally, close to the aqueduct. These neurons receive fast excitatory and inhibitory synaptic inputs in brainslices.
