Dopamine Transporter Gene and Primate Social Behavior

  1. Very nice illustration. I have a question please, May I receive a reply to my email address. Thank you so much.
    Are the EPSP and IPSP occur at the receptor sites or near the axons when Dopamine binds to D1 and D2 respectively at the post-synaptic neurons.
    (my apology: my question mark key not functional)

  2. What does this have to do with anthropology? This is nothing but an illustration of a synapse (and quite an introductory-level one at that). In fact, it doesn’t even specifically depict a dopaminergic cell, let alone express in any way a relationship between this particular form of synapse and primate social behaviour (which in itself is a vague enough concept). Why, I am therefore left to wonder, is this illustration titled accordingly?
