Dopamine and Psychosis

As clinicians, we have some idea that dopamine has something to do with the onset of psychosis. We know this because of the historical concept that "blocking" dopamine receptors somehow improves some psychotic states.[1] We just don't know the "where" and "how." We give antipsychotics, which we understand to be "dopamine blockers," and the irrational becomes rational again
