R&C “Hyperbolic Discounting May Be Reduced To Electrical Coupling In Dopaminergic Neural Circuits.” “Disordered dopamine neurotransmission is implicated in mediating impulsiveness across a range of behaviors and disorders including addiction, compulsive gambling, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and dopamine dysregulation syndrome. (Our understanding is that this is largely due to […]
