Brain is the your supreme commander, and Neurotransmitters are its wonder chemicals , responsible for mood changes. Sometimes you feel happy other-time sad, anxious, dejected or calm. Do you ever think why it is so ? It is because of the secretion of wonder chemicals in your brain known as neurotranmitters.
Brain is a massive network of interconnected neurons.They are firing continuously, 24×7 and and are secreting chemicals- called neurotransmiters ,all the time and navigating messages from one neuron to other. This regular and rapid neuro-chemical phenomenon is the basis of your mood changes and altered conciousness . When a neuron receives any message, it is converted into the electrical signals,which when reaches at the synapse (Junction between two neuronal cells), secretes neurotransmittters .These chemical particles are received by the post synaptic neuron and again converted into electrical signal. This electro-chemical phenomenon is known as Neuron-Firing .
Cummulative effect of all these circulating messages forms the basis of your mood- happyness , sad, motivated ,dejected , feeling of anxiety and emotions- love ,effection, bonding or anger ,irritation.
Although there are more than 40 neurochemicals being secreted and circulated in you brain and around the nerves ,but following seven are most important ones. These control your mood and emotions.
Thus we see that in the real sense Neurotransmitters are Wonder-Chemicals of 0ur brain .These are secreted in our brain in very miniscule quantity ,but have very widespread effect on our Personality,mood and emotions. .
