The dopamine pathways in the brain Dopamine is transmitted via three major pathways. The first extends from the substantia nigra to the caudate nucleus-putamen (neostriatum) and is concerned with sensory stimuli and movement. The second pathway projects from the ventral tegmentum to the mesolimbic forebrain and is thought to be associated with cognitive, reward and emotional behaviour. The third pathway, known as the tubero-infundibular system, is concerned with neuro…


The substantia nigra is susceptible to compression by an increase in CSF volume in the cisterns and cerebral aqueduct.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter created naturally in the body and it prompts several important functions in the human body. Dopamine is located in the Substantia Nigra of the brain and nerve cells. They let go of it in the form of a chemical substance to disseminate signals to different nerve cells. Dopamine has a major role to play in the reward and pleasure gateway of the brain, along with memory and movement control which further triggers Dopamine deficiency.

Research has shown that exercise can actually halt or slow the progression of this...
