Dopamine–adenosine (ADO) interactions in the substantia nigra. An indirect path- way dopaminergic pathway arises from the striatal GABA-enkephalinergic dopaminergic neurons on which both dopamine D1 and adenosine A2A receptors are co-localized. Through a GABAergic interneuron originating in the external globus pallidus, the indirect pathway connects to a gluta- minergic pathway arising in the subthalamic nucleus. This, in turn, can activate the internal seg- ment of the pars reticulata and, through another GABA pathway, inhibit ascending glutaminegic neurons arising from the thalamus that innervate the cortex. The direct pathway arises from striatal GABA–substance P–dynorphinergic neurons that, through a GABAergic relay, inhibit the internal segment of the pars reticulata to disinhibit the ascending thalamic-cortical glutaminergic pathway. The balance between the direct (activating) and indirect (inhibitory) striatal dopami- nergic pathways can then tonically regulate normal motor activity. Dopaminergic inputs arising from the substantia nigra pars compacta can facilitate motor activity, inhibiting the indirect path- way by activation of D2 receptors and activating the direct pathway by D1 receptor activation.
