Neurotransmitters by Mind Map: Neurotransmitters

1. Acetylcholine:rapid-fire neurotransmitter of the PNS neuromuscular junction causing muscles to contract

2. Glutamate: major excitatory chemical of synaptic activity in the CNS

3. Gamma-aminobutyric acid:binds to postsynaptic receptor sites, blocking the action of other neurotransmitters

4. Dopamine:plays a role in motor control

5. Epinephrine: regulates heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing and in the fight and flight response

6. Norepinephrine:modulates attention, sleep-wake cycle, and mood

7. Serotonin:has both excitatory and inhibitory effects of the nervous system
