The article focuses on jealousy. It highlights the association of jealousy with the brain's left frontal cortex, which deals in emotions, and the dopamine system. Information is provided on the three types of jealousy, such as reactive jealousy, suspicious jealousy and delusional jealousy. The benefit of jealousy is explored.

    Dopamine terminals in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex modulate cognitive processes such as spatial learning and working memory. Because dopamine D4 receptors are expressed in these brain areas we have analyzed mutant mice lacking this receptor sub-type (Drd4-/-). Wild-type and Drd4-/- mice...

    We previously reported that depletion of brain tyrosine attenuated the acute clozapine (CLZ)-induced increase in medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) dopamine (DA) levels. This effect was now examined after chronic CLZ treatment. Male rats received CLZ (10 mg kg−1 day−1) in drinking water...
