Neurotransmitters are substances that transmit messages from one neuron to another through an electrochemical process. Neurons are nerve cells found throughout the human body in our nervous system. The nervous system covers our entire body and allows all areas of the body to communicate with the brain. This communication occurs with the help of the neurotransmitters. There are many neurotransmitters. Imbalances found in some of these neurotransmitters in the brain have been implicated in symptoms found in some mental disorders and states. The info-graphic below shows an example of a few neurotransmitters and how they affect us and some medications or substances that help with regulating imbalances.

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
