An Autopsy Case of Disorganized Type of Schizophrenia: Dopamine Neurons in the Ventral Tegmental Area

The pathophysiology of schizophrenia has been linked to the mesolimbic dopamine (DA) system. Using tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) immunohistochemistry, we show DA-containing neuronal structures in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of an autopsy case of disorganised form of schizophrenia (75-year-old female).
