Following multiple clinical trials with dopamine agents and FDA approval for several agents, in 2004 Littner et al.
Dopamine agents marketed in the United States are bromocriptine (Parlodel [R]), pramipexole (Mirapex [R]), ropinirole (Requip [R], Requip XL [R]), and apomorphine (Apokyn [TM] injection) (Edmunds & Mayhew, 2009; PDE 2010a).
Besides that, according to the researchers, the changes in NMDA responses to dopamine agents changed the functional circuitry of the cells, making the cells more responsive to electrical impulses coming from an indirect route through three processing "stations" before they reached the output region of the hippocampus.
