We are proposing a special issue on dopamine D3 receptors (D3R). Since its discovery in 1990 by Sokoloff in the group of Jean-Charles Swartz, numerous studies have emphasized its brain location, its molecular partners and, more generally, its important roles in central dopaminergic transmission. Nowadays, D3Rs are strongly considered in the treatment of various central nervous system conditions including schizophrenia, depression, addiction, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease to cite a few. Numerous drugs acting at D3Rs have been released, some of them being selective whereas others favor multitarget approach. The field is progressing fast and in several directions. Our purpose is to collect research and review articles studying the functions of D3Rs, mostly in mammals, and to receive preclinical and clinical contributions highlighting the interests to target D3Rs in neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions.
