Neurotransmitter of the Day-Vol I-Dopamine



Neurotransmitters, friend or foe? They can help you get shit done or they can screw up your functioning good and proper. Today's neurotransmitter is dopamine. Too little and you end up with a disease like Parkinson's, too much and you end up with one of many forms of psychosis (well, it's a little more complicated than that, but you get the picture). Appreciate the fine line you walk each day.

I think the "fine line" that I walk every day is more like a game of hopscotch...or twister.

Can I adopt dopamine instead of an out of work actor?
