The mesolimbicocortical sytem is a dopamine pathway that runs from the ventral tegmental area (A10) forwards to the nucleus accumbens, amygdala, septum, olfactory nuclei,

Increased dopamine activity in the mesolimbicocortical has been implicated in schizophrenia. The nigrostriatal system is damaged in Parkinson's disease. Drugs with addictive potential release dopamine in the nucleus accumbens.
