The neurons inside of the central and peripheral nervous system are responsible for all human activity. A neurotransmitter is a chemical that is released by a neurons terminal button. Neurotransmitters have either an excitatory or an inhibitory effect on the other nearby neurons. Neurotransmitters are very important part of the CNS because they allow communication to occur inside neurons as well as between neurons. This article reviews about the four primary neurotransmitters - acetylcholine, dopamine, GABA and serotonin, their impact on mental illness and rebalance them effectively.
