Burguière, Monteiro, Feng, and Graybiel (2013) obtained direct electrophysiologic recordings from the OFC and striatum in the Sapap3 mutant mice. They found that the excessive grooming behavior in these mice was directly related to a failure to inhibit neurons in the striatum. Next they showed that optogenetic stimulation of the mouse OFC restored normal inhibition to the striatal neurons and blocked excessive grooming. Thus, the Ahmari and the Burguière studies documented that compulsive behavior in the mouse is under the direct control of the OFC–striatal pathway, the same pathway that has been shown to Challenges to Implementing Evidence-Based Treatments be dysfunctional in humans who display abnormal repetitive thoughts and behaviors.

These changes in gene expression are mediated by drug-induced epigenetic alterations in the acetylation and methylation of histones and DNA (see below for further explanation) (Maze & Russo, 2010; Nestler, 2013). As is the case with the other three examples of neurobiological progress in understanding mental illness discussed so far, the VTA–NA dopamine story for drug addiction has complexities and limitations. This pathway is, of course, highly interconnected with many other brain networks and is influenced by a host of other neurotransmitters besides dopamine.

Just as was the case for the “serotonergic” and “noradrenergic” hypotheses of mood and anxiety disorders, this idea is based on the logic that if a drug works in patients with an illness (proposition A) and the drug targets a specific neurotransmitter system (proposition B), then the illness must be the result of an abnormality in that neurotransmitter system (conclusion C). Patients with schizophrenia are indeed more behaviorally sensitive to the effects of dopamine agonists such as amphetamine than healthy controls (Seeman, 2013).
