It has always been my feeling that dopaminergic neuronal circuit dysfunction represented the downstream consequences of pathologies appearing elsewhere in the brain. I actually presented this idea to my doctors at Columbia-Presbyterian in 1983. I was laughed at. If this theory is true, then dopaminergic drugs would be more palliative than curative. However, I would most gladly take a palliative drug were it to make me feel and function normally.
