Thanks for confirming. I also found in neurolex the following: "Ventral 
tegmental area dopamine neuron". That means dopamine neuron (or 
dopaminergic cell) can be found in more than one brain region. As far as 
the "substantia nigra" is concerned, dopamine neuron is only found in 
its subregion " pars compacta".
