    And now it’s my favourite neurotransmitter too!

  2. Fred

    I can see that this neurotransmitter really works. Is it addictive?

  3. M.John Harrison should be informed. (cf ’07 ACC winner Nova Swing).

  4. That’s so awesome! I love that idea. I wonder if there is anyone out there that has their body tattooed in such a way as to label the muscles/tendons/blood vessels/etc… That would be… well creepy, but cool.

    Oh, raver-girls. I love you AND serotonin! (It’s funny how many people I know whose favorite neurotransmitter is serotonin…)
