Effects of Chemical Brain Assault
Excerpts from "Mapping the Mind", Rita Carter
Increases the amount of dopamine available to cells by blocking the mechanism that usually gets rid of excess dopamine. It also blocks re-uptake of noradrenaline and serotonin. The rise in these three neurotransmitters causes the feeling of euphoria (dopamine), confidence (serotonin) and energy (noradrenaline) associated with the drug. This drug became popular in the 70's and was often presented as a "non-addictive" substance. Countless stories of destroyed lives, especially in the entertainment world, soon became the norm, and the "non-addictive" drug was proven to be just the opposite.
