    Reciprocal synapses between mushroom body and dopamine neurons form a positive feedback loop required for learning

    Isaac Cervantes-Sandoval et al.
    Structural and functional analysis of axonal-axonal reciprocal connections between dopamine neurons and Kenyon cells provides insight into the brain computations for normal associative olfactory learning.

    Midbrain dopamine neurons signal aversion in a reward-context-dependent manner

    Hideyuki Matsumoto et al.
    Dopamine neurons signal value prediction errors (VPEs) integrating information about both reward and aversion, in low reward contexts, whereas VPEs in some dopamine neurons are distorted in high reward contexts.

    Dopamine neuron dependent behaviors mediated by glutamate cotransmission

    Susana Mingote et al.
    The conditional reduction of glutaminase in mouse dopamine neurons selectively attenuates glutamate cotransmission at phasic frequencies, revealing the role of dopamine neuron glutamate cotransmission in the attribution of motivational salience.

    Dopamine neurons learn relative chosen value from probabilistic rewards

    Armin Lak et al.
    When learning the reward probability of novel cues, dopamine neurons convey dissociable value and novelty signals.

    Network oscillation rules imposed by species-specific electrical coupling

    Stefanos Stagkourakis et al.
    An unexpected species difference in electrical coupling of analogous neuroendocrine dopamine neurons in rats and mice reveals a role for gap junction connectivity as a band-pass filter for oscillation frequency in neural networks.

    Dopamine neurons drive fear extinction learning by signaling the omission of expected aversive outcomes

    Ximena I Salinas-Hernández et al.
    Dopamine signaling is necessary for normal fear extinction learning.

    eIF2α-mediated translational control regulates the persistence of cocaine-induced LTP in midbrain dopamine neurons

    Andon N Placzek et al.
    Building on previous work (Huang et al., 2016), we show that translational control by p-eIF2α is a defense mechanism that prevents persistent cocaine-induced synaptic synaptic potentiation underlying compulsive drug seeking.

    Oxytocin functions as a spatiotemporal filter for excitatory synaptic inputs to VTA dopamine neurons

    Lei Xiao et al.
    Oxytocin, a peptide linked to the processing of socially meaningful stimuli, modulates excitatory synaptic transmission in dopaminergic neurons of ventral tegmental area via retrograde endocannabinoid signaling, acting as a pathway-specific temporal filter for synaptic inputs.
