an example would be "Depression can be caused by a low level of serotonin in the brain".
Perhaps, but many patients with panic disorder are found to have a decrease in the number of receptors that serotonin binds to. The effect is equal to having a low serotonin level. I am a medical student currently doing research in this area.
depression, sleep-wake cyclealtered, anxiety and so on
It is hypothesized that this may be the case, but more studies are needed in this regard. Seasonal depression seems to be associated more with light cycle variations, primarily.
Mental depression is believed to be related to the low activity of one or more neurotransmitters in the brain.Although it is not understood exactly how most SSRIs work, they are designed to increase the level of serotonin in the brain.
Serum serotonin levels can be obtained (as ordered by a physician or nurse practitioner or physician assistant). However, serum serotonin levels do not possess much utililty since they vary widely - some people having low levels despite being on significant doses of setonergic medications, and other people have high levels despite being on very low doses.
Although brain chemical imbalances that cause depression are complex, researchers believe that a few main hormones are responsible for promoting feelings of well being. These hormones are norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin. Another name for these hormones is monoamine transporters; that is they carry important messages along the neural pathway in the brain. Where an imbalance of these hormones occurs, a mood, energy or cognitive problem results. This is why these hormones are closely associated with… Read More
The different chemicals in the brain include dopamine, serotonin and glutamate. Other chemicals are GABA, acetylcholine, cannabinoids and opioids. Serotonin is associated with mood and dopamine is associated with pleasure.
Ecstasy is mostly know for increasing Serotonin levels in the synapse which it does the most. It also increases levels of dopamine, monoamine, and norepinephrine. Serotonin is associated with your mood/emotions, sleep and appetite. Antidepressant drugs ussually target and increase serotonin levels as people who are depressed have low serotonin levels. This is why ecstasy makes you happy and loving when you take it. Dopamine is what allows us to expierence pleasure or pain, This… Read More
An area of low geopotential heights.
yes, but mostly with sleep and tired
Cold air aloft is associated with a surface low pressure system. The reverse is true for warm air aloft. In a baroclinic low pressure system, the upper-level low/trough is usually situated over the cold air, while upper level highs/ridges are around warm air aloft.
The production and transmission of the hormone serotonin is associated with depression. It really is a "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" situation.
Depression is due to alteration in the level of serotonin at the synaptic junctions of neurons in the limbic system.
Low serotonin levels, for one. Drugs such as fluoxetine, sertraline, paroxetine, citalopram and escitalopram are called SSRI's--Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors and keep your serotonin levels at normal levels. Also, low norepinephrine levels can be a problem. Drugs such as venlafaxine, desvenlafaxine and duloxetine are called SNRI's --Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors, and help to keep both your serotonin and norepinephrine levels at normal levels. Dopamine is one the chemical messagers responsible for the "pleasure seeking" behaviors… Read More
Norepinephrine and serotonin nuerotransmitters
Neurotransmitter synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan, serotonin is assumed to play a biochemical role in mood and mood disorders, including anxiety, depression , and bipolar disorder.
Among a multitude, there are some that are psychiatric, among them: Alzheimers - Acetylcholine Parkinson - Dopamine, trace amines Fibromyalgia - Serotonin Chronic fatigue syndrome - Excitatory neurotransmitters Amotivational syndrome - Dopamine ADD - Serotonin, Phenylethylamine Dopamine, and norepinephrine Vasopressin - Low > diabetes insipidus, High > Syndrome of innapropriate anti-diurhetichormone Hypercortisolemia - Cortisol HGH - High > acromelagy, Low > HGH deficiency Histamine - High > Histadelia, OCD, and premature ejaculation, Low > Histapenia… Read More

Many doctors will purscribe SSRIs and SNRIs to treat serotonin deficiency but it is not a cure, just a bandaid and a poor one at that. People with criticaly low serotonin levels are unable to benefit from the effects of SSRIs and SNRIs simply due to the brain's own inability to trigger the release of serotonin in any meaningful ammounts without outside stimulis (in my case due to heavy drug abuse in my youth).
Well it isn't really so bad, but it can cause overheating of your body, dehydration, and when you are high, the brains uses most of "serotonin". Serotonin is responsible for good mood and some other stuff. When you take Ecstasy, big amount of serotonin us pumped, which makes you feel very good. But when you come down from high, you have low level of serotonin, which makes you depressed. That depression lasts from day to… Read More
Depression is often linked to low serotonin levels in the brain. Depression is a very complicated matter, however, and it is not always due to this.
This is an incredibly broad question. The basic theory is that many drugs force there to be an excess of serotonin in the synapse of a neuron, by either stopping the re-uptake of it (antidepressants) or by other complex actions (amphetamines). The addicts nervous system begins to take note of this and not produce/release as much serotonin, this leads to a state of low level endogenous serotonin production, thus leading to withdrawal and craving. By… Read More
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical) responsible for feelings of well being and happiness. Serotonin is found in the central nervous system, where it regulates mood, appetite and sleep, and in the gut, where it regulates intestinal movements. Symptoms of serotonin deficiency include depression, anxiety, irritability, perfectionism, low self esteem, repetitive thoughts and insomnia. Depression that's worse in Winter is due to serotonin deficiency. Here is a <a href=http://www.gethelpfordepression.info/Tests/SerotoninTest.aspx target="_blank">Serotonin Deficiency Test</a>
The straight answer is that no one knows for sure. The prevailing hypothesis is the neurotransmitter hypothesis. For example, specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) work by inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin back into the presymaptic nerve terminal for metabolism and re-synthesis. By allowing more serotonin to remain in the synapse, improved serotnergic functioning may occur. And since Swedish studies have shown very low serum serotonin levels in post-mortem individuals after suicide, it has been inferred… Read More
Storms are generally associated with low pressure systems.
Rain is associated with low pressure because it is damp and wet
the Low Low is for a Very Low level Alarm, or an emergency status. the Low is just a low level switch who activate any normal output
No absolutely not. 5-HTP is the precursor to 5-HT (serotonin), which is why it seems to alleviate depression and other issues associated with low serotonin. Marijuana tests look for metabolites related to the drug, which are completely different from 5-HTP. You have 5-HTP in your system without taking the supplement, your body makes it naturally from the amino acid Tryptophan. You will not however have any marijuana metabolites without smoking/ingesting some of the green stuff… Read More
The anti-depressant Fluoxetine is marketed under the brand name "Prozac" It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, or SSRI. Serotonin is one of the brain chemicals which regulate mood. Fluoxetine helps the brain produce more serotonin and prevents it from being absorbed by the body.
Impulsive behavior, and especially impulsive violence predisposition has been correlated to a low brain serotonin turnover rate, indicated by a low concentration of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). Possible polymorphisms in the gene for tryptophan hydroxylase, which is responsible for the production of hydroxytryptophan, the precursor of serotonin. Within violent subjects, a significant relationship was observed between CSF 5-HIAA concentration and specific polymorphism genotypes. The phenotypes associated with these genotypes are… Read More
Tornadoes and other forms of severe or stormy weather are associated with low pressure.
Citolapram is an antidepressant medication. The brand name you might have seen is Celexa. This is one of the newer SSRI or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor which helps your brain restore proper levels of serotonin to help with those low moods.
In low doses a synthetic form of THC has been found to act as an antidepressant by enhancing serotonin levels in the brain, but at high doses it can apparently worsen depression and other mental disorders.
It is based on the fact that serotonin (5-hydroxy-tryptamine) gets converted into bufotenin, a psychedelic drug which is called bufotenin or 5-hydroxy-dimethyltryptamine. Psychedelics have been known to bring great things to an individual. The same applies for autism.
There is not a level associated with scandium.
Anaemia can be associated with low ferritin and high Folate levels.
Low iron is associated with Anemia. I have low iron (low hemoglobin) levels. It is called being anemic. It is usually fixed with taking iron supplements.
It's a "low level" language because it works at the machine level, while higher level languages are built on top of it.
Doctors do not measure serotonin on a regular basis. If a doctor is trying to proscribe SSRI antidepressants to you, ask him to measure your serotonin level before proscribing anything to modify the level. He will not and you will save yourself a lot of cutting and suicide attempts. At your age SSRIs are very harmful and will make depression much worse than it already is. Life is tough at 15, just ride it out… Read More
What is Low Level and High Level Scheduling
It is a low-level cloud type.
Food cravings are a common occurrence in women during individual menstrual cycles. Several factors play a part in these food cravings. Blood sugar level, magnesium deficiency, low serotonin level and normal hormone fluctuations are reasons why women may seem to crave sweet or salty snacks.
Low-level code is often confused with machine-level code (such as assembly), however low-level code is really user-level code that operates at a low-level. Although low-level code can (and often does) operate at the machine-level, the defining characteristic is the amount of abstraction involved. Low-level code is often used to provide an implementation detail that is made accessible to the user through a high-level interface. Objects (instances of a class) are typically high-level data types that… Read More
Tornadoes are generally associated with low pressure systems.
Anorexia is a food disorder in which the victim starves him/ her self to lose weight. Girls from ages 15 - 25 are most vulnerable to the eating disorder. Girls with anorexia have a higher level of serotonin. Serotonin plays a role in appetite to regain homeostasis. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter involved in sleep, depression, and memory. This happens because the girls want to lower their serotonin level by starving themselves. The human body however… Read More
Yes they can. Because you are not getting in much if any carbohydrates your blood sugar remains very low, because your body and particularly your brain prefers to run on glucose the body is forced to make it's own, to do this it has to release hormones to assist in gluconeogenesis (the creation of glucose) these hormones are our bodies ''fight or flight'' hormones mainly cortisol and adrenaline. With these hormones circulating the body it… Read More
There are several causes: hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, poor diet, low serotonin levels and more.
Because it is sweet and addicting. If you do not believe me have 1 hole day of eating nothing but sugar and the next day you will want more or unless you get sick try again. (But do not do it a lot that is a way most because Americans get fat) I have a different take on this. We crave sugar when our blood levels go low or below a certain level at which… Read More
