This work presents a computational model of dopamine (DA) influence on long-term potentiation (LTP) and
long-term depression (LTD) in the prefrontal cortex. Distinct properties of the model are a DA-concentra-
tion-dependent switch from depression to potentiation during induction of plasticity, and an inverted-U-
