  • BROUGHT TO YOU BY: KHUSH, RIDA, SPAN
  • THE LIFE OF SEROTONIN IN DEPRESSION
  • Honey. It's only a matter of time. You will be cured. Let's take you inside the brain.
  • Why am I so sad? What is wrong with me. FIX ME PLEASE!
  • Sweetie, you are depressed. This is because there is a decrease in your serotonin levels.  Seratonin contributes to your well-being and happiness. It appears to play a key role in maintaining mood balance.
  • You can use Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibition (SSRI) as an anti-depressant. SOOO, serotonin is a neurotransmitter which goes from the dendrites of a neuron, through the cell body into the axon. It then goes down the axon as a nerve impulse which is called an action potential. It then reaches the terminal buttons and the information is released through in neurotransmitters through the synaptic gap.
  • Additionally, it inhibits the reuptake of the neurotransmitters, allowing for more serotonin to be available in the receptor sites of the post-synaptic neuron. 
  • So now you know the link between serotonin and your depression.
  • Will all of these pills fix me and make me happy?
  • Nope.
  • The End
