A recent investigation of this connection using retrograde tracing and electron microscopy showed that the LDTg makes asymmetric, presumably excitatory, contacts preferentially onto VTA dopamine neurons that project to the nucleus accumbens [30]. Symmetric, presumably inhibitory or cholinergic, contacts were also seen on both dopaminergic and nondopaminergic VTA neurons [30]. Presynaptic structures that express the vesicular acetylcholine transporter, a marker for cholinergic terminals, synapse onto VTA neurons that show little or no expression of the dopamine transporter which suggests significant cholinergic innervation of nondopamine neurons [32].
