Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is both excitatory and inhibitory in function, as well as a neuromodulator, involved in reward, motivation, and addiction.
Dopamine is mostly produced in an area of the brain called the ventral tegmental area (VTA), located within the midbrain. Once produced in the VTA, the dopamine is transported to other areas of the brain, through different pathways, the two main ones being the mesolimbic and the mesocorticol dopamine pathways.
