This study looks at dopamine modulation of ASH neurons, which are part of the avoidance circuit of C. elegans, and their response to water soluble stimuli. Because nematodes such as Caenorhabditis elegans utilize dopamine at the molecular and cellular level in much the same way as mammals, they offer researchers a unique opportunity to study the mechanisms of dopamine signaling.
