At the end of this unit students will:
1. Identify how neurotransmitters move from cell to cell in the brain
2. Identify the difference between
3. Identify what kind of neuronal malfunctioning causes psychiatric symptoms.
This is a brief description of the process of neurotransmission of chemicals within the brain and the impact that this has on the development or resolution of psychiatric symptoms.
This mini lecture explains how neurotransmitters move from neuron (nerve cell) to neuron within the brain. When the neurotransmitter system is malfunctioning then psychiatric symptoms emerge.
