Dopamine is a simple organic chemical in the catecholamine family that plays a number of important roles in the brains and bodies of animals. Its name derives from its chemical structure, which consists of an amine group (NH2) linked to a catechol structure called dihydroxyphenethylamine, the decarboxylated form of dihydroxyphenylalanine (known as L-DOPA).
