If drug A antagonizes an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System of a patient the most likely effect would be what?
Jittery - your taking away the inhibitory element with the antagonist. Read More

Is the effect of a neurotransmitter on the muscle cell membrane to modify its ion permeability properties temporarily?
yes thats true Read More
it takes up to a few weeks before you will feel any benefit of the drug, this first benefit will be about 20-30% of the full effect of the drug which takes more time to have the full effect even up to months. Be patient. Read More
Pharmacological action is the therapeutic action of the drug on the body. For example, how the drug acts on the cells, what the drug does to the cells. Whereas the alteration or changes produced after the drug has acted (the action being; how the drug acted and what action did the drug do) on the cells is pharmacologial effect. Simply, in layman's terms pharmacological action is what action the drug can do and the pharmacological… Read More

Criteria required identifying a substance as a neurotransmitter 1- ) Synthesis of the substance: • It is synthesized in the neuron • Some substances are synthesized from the Tryptophan • Rate limiting step in its synthesis • Enzymes required in the synthesis of that substance are themselves synthesized in the cell body of neuron ,then distributed throughout the neuron • Mainly found in the cell body and nerve terminal • These enzymes are stored in… Read More
One of the defining properties of a neurotransmitter is that is must be synthesized in the neuron. The brain does not synthesize methamphetamine. Methamphetamine is introduced exogenously and exerts its effects on a neurotranmitter system called the 'adrenergic system'. Methamphetamine also has a direct effect on dopamine transmission. The drug, like its parent structure (amphetamine) causes a release of dopamine through reuptake transporters (DATs), which have been modulated to reverse their normal function as a… Read More
A negative effect of a drug or aid in sport such as caffeine. Read More
By using dopamine as a neurotransmitter, cocaine can affect the synapses. Cocaine attaches to the dopamine receptors of the presynaptic membrane. It prevents dopamine re-uptake, causing it to accumulate in the synaptic cleft. As an excitatory psychoactive drug, it amplifies synaptic transmission. The accumulation of dopamine creates a sense of euphoria. Read More
The generic name for Neurontin is gabapentin. It is an anticonvulsant drug used to treat seizures. Pain specialists also prescribe it for nerve pain. It is chemically similar to a neurotransmitter called GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), but does not act as GABA. A very rare side effect of gabapentin is increased libido. Read More
What dangers exist from taking a drug that interferes with naturally produced neurotransmitter chemicals?
The interaction of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters are important. There are many different neurotransmitters that are identified within the nervous system and if an individual takes drugs that interfere with the neurotransmitter chemicals, then that could lead to a variety of problems and complications depending what neurotransmitter the drug has affected. For example, Parkinson's disease, characterized by involuntary muscle contractions and tremors is caused by inadequate production of dopamine; Alzheimer's disease, associated with the deterioration… Read More

Learning consists of: -Determining how good or bad the behavior is -Strengthening connections if the behavior is good, and -Weaking connections if not. The first line is an open question in science today, glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter, and GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter. Read More
Could intelligence be primarily a matter of having plenty of the right neurotransmitter at the right synapses?
Optimal neurotransmitter function certainly would help a brain reach its full intellectual potential. However, neuronal connections are what hold the data of intelligence in the first place. However optimal neurotransmitter function encourages the new neuronal connections. Read More
