Dopaminergic means "related to the neurotransmitter dopamine". A synapse is dopaminergic if it uses dopamine as its neurotransmitter. A substance is dopaminergic if it is capable of producing, altering, or releasing dopamine.

A dopaminergic, or dopaminergic agent, is any chemical which functions to enhance the effects mediated by dopamine in the central nervous system. These include dopamine precursors and cofactors, dopaminergic enzymes, as well as dopamine reuptake inhibitors.
