(couldn't find the NCS-R DATA) Problems with doing survey research on mental disorders - Can’t study clinical population because not everyone goes for treatment - Problem with validity - Doesn’t take context into consideration - Too specific - False negatives - False positive - People get put into mental disorders but they don’t actually have them Neurotransmitters (what are they and know the three noted in class) Neurotransmitters are the brains form of sending information between one neuron to another. The cell gets an electrical charge and if it is passed a certain threshold the cell body passes the electrical charge through the axon towards the axon terminals.Then the neurotransmitter go through the synapse gap and gets “captured” through to the other side which are than received by the opposing cells dendrites.These chemicals that are in the synaptic gap have a huge effect on emotion if they are taken back to fast or left there too long. some drugs either allow for excess flow of the chemicals ,stop the chemicals from being taken back too quickly, or speed up the process in which they are taken back to the axon. When the chemicals don’t leave and hold on --> problematic When too many are released, or too few --> problematic Depression: lack of serotonin
