The authors hypothesize that schizophrenia is characterized by abnormally low prefrontal dopamine activity causing deficit symptoms leading to excessive dopamine activity in mesolimbic dopamine neurons causing positive symptoms. This paper has highly influenced 28 other papers. The initial hypothesis that schizophrenia is a manifestation of hyperdopaminergia has recently been faulted. Topics Discussed in This Paper. Recent animal and human studies suggest that prefrontal dopamine neurons inhibit subcortical dopamine activity.
