A Simple Guide to Neurotransmitters

Today’s post is an update to this old one on the chemical structures of neurotransmitters.¬†Your¬†thought processes are the results of some pretty complex chemistry, and these compounds are some of the chemical entities involved in it. Below is given a little more detail on each, lifted from the original graphics.

Chemical Structures of Neurotransmitters

A bit of a chemistry/biology tie in today with a series of posters looking at the chemical structures of some of the main neurotransmitters in the brain. I’ve also included a little information on the main effects and roles of each underneath the structures – however, I’d hasten to add that, since this is definitely […]
