Neurotransmitter Pendants

Neurotransmitter Pendants

If we combine art, jewelry design, biochemistry and neuroscience, these beautiful pendants come out! Serotonin, dopamine and acetylcholine are 3 major neurotransmitters (or hormones) in the nervous system which are responsible for our major emotions, behavior and neuronal functions.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (A chemical substance that transmits nerve impulses across the space between nerve cells or neurons) and plays an important part in the regulation of learning, mood, sleep and vasoconstriction. Experts say serotonin also might have a role in anxiety, migraine, vomiting and appetite.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter (A chemical messenger that helps in the transmission of signals in the brain and other vital areas) similar to adrenaline. Dopamine affects brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pleasure and pain.

Acetylcholine is the major excitatory neurotransmitter at nematode neuromuscular junctions. In the peripheral nervous system acetylcholine plays a role in skeletal muscle movement, as well as in the regulation of smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. In the central nervous system acetylcholine is believed to be involved in learning, memory, and mood.

If you’re looking to purchase these pendants you can find them in major online stores for around $80.
