As promised in my previous post, I am back with a new one.
Dopamine is one of the brain’s neurotransmitters- A chemical which ferries information between neurons. Dopamine helps to regulate movement, attention, learning and emotional responses.
It also enables us not to see rewards but to take action to move toward them. Since dopamine contributes to the feeling of pleasures and satisfaction as part of the reward system, the neurotransmitter also plays a part in addiction.
