Mesolimbic dopamine and the neuropsychology of dreaming: Some caution and reconsiderations

  • Fabrizio Doricchi (a1) and Cristiano Violani (a2)
Abstract

New findings point to a role for mesolimbic DA circuits in the generation of dreaming. We disagree with Solms about these structures having an exclusive role in generating dreams. We review data suggesting that dreaming can be interrupted at different levels of processing and that anterior-subcortical lesions associated with dream cessation are unlikely to produce selective hypodopaminergic dynamic impairments.
