Date: 09/13/2020Critical Thinking: Biology of Behavior – NeuroscienceQuestion 1 solvedThe process of Neurotransmitters messages and their chemical is a very well-builtmechanism that helps living creatures as known as humans process theircapabilities to gather information by usingPeripheral Nervous System(PNS),and willing to make decisions from the spinal cord to the brain as knownasCentral Nervous System(CNS). The neurons are linked to them and all entirebody to help gather and pass the information (messages), from the Cell body(sending neuron) to Axon having the Action Potential in it, this action in someneurons will speed up very fast from Myelin Sheath (the Axon cover) and finishesto its branch terminal, also gets close to Synaptic Gap, which they are very closetogether but they don’t connect, but they share neurotransmitters (a.k.a Serotonin)chemicals to the receptor. The chemical reuptakes to the Sending Neuron andcreate its chemical levels, either high or low, depending on the relationship blocksof Prozac with the chemical molecule (Serotonin).Definitions of two Neurotransmitters and their lack of level turned into behaviorSerotoninis a hormone responsible for sending nerve signals to the brain andhelps improve mood, improves sleep and aids digestion. If you have an imbalanceof this hormone or if its levels are low, you will have these problems:Constant fatigue: the body's energy production is dependent on serotonin
