Abstract

Initial investigations on dopamine D<SUB>4</SUB> receptors generated much interest in the role of this receptor in schizophrenia and other aspects of human behavior, as well as new opportunities for novel therapeutics.However, attempts to treat patients suffering from schizophrenia with dopamine D<SUB>4</SUB> agents have failed to yield satisfactory results so far.An examination of the dopamine D<SUB>4</SUB> literature shows that contrasting and conflicting data seemed to be the norm in this field of research.This paper reviews the literature on the dopamine D<SUB>4</SUB> receptor and discusses many of the associated methodological problems that might have contributed to the paradoxical findings.
