Neurotransmitters play a critical role in neural communication, influencing everything from involuntary movements to learning to mood. This system is both complex and highly interconnected. Neurotransmitters act in specific ways, but they can also be affected by diseases, drugs, or even the actions of other chemical messengers.

    Neurotransmitters have been studied quite a bit in relation to psychology and human behavior. What we have found is that several neurotransmitters play a role in the way we behave, learn, the way we feel, and sleep. And, some play a role in mental illnesses. The following are those neurotransmitters which play a significant role in our mental. Neurotransmitters, Drugs and Brain Function.

How prescription drugs affect neurotransmitters; My page book, The Stress Remedy, is a comprehensive guide on how to deal with – and heal from – stress, and restore optimal health.

My newest book – Stress Warrior – puts it all into a step by step plan. Excitatory neurotransmitters cause neurons to fire ‘action potentials’ – essentially an electrical signal – whilst inhibitory neurotransmitters prevent action potentials being fired. Action potentials play an important role in cell to cell communication; for example, in muscle cells, the firing of an action potential will eventually.

Neurotransmitters. A neurotransmitter (NT) is a small molecule released at the presynaptic axonal membrane of one neuron into the synaptic cleft to bind with the receptors present in the postsynaptic membrane of another neuron (or muscle fiber), which results in either excitation or inhibition of the passage of signals across the synapse.

When stimulated by an action potential, synaptic vesicles of a synapse release neurotransmitters, which cross the small distance (synaptic cleft) between an axon terminal and a dendrite via the neurotransmitter binds a receptor at the dendrite, the signal is communicated.
