discovery of dopamine as a neurotransmitter

I'm beginning research on the discovery of dopamine's role in Parkinson's 
and schizophrenia.  I would like to know when it was discovered that 
dopamine is a neurotransmitter in its own right, and who made this 
discovery (Carlsson?).  Basically, I'm looking for the paper that says 
"and here is definitive proof that DA is a neurotransmitter".  That is, 
if such a paper exits.  Any help would be appreciated.
