Question:
What is the effect of decrease in seratonin to melatonin transfer? Are there any other chemical process variations which could affect perception?



Replies:
I'm not an expert on the seratonin melatonin transfer, but I know there are many chemical process variations that can affect perception. Popular articles on neurotransmitters can be found in Scientific American Nov. 1993 P. 58 and The Sciences, Sept. 1993, P 27. A more technical article is published in Life Sciences, 1994, V. 54, N. 22, P. 1635 - "Functional Studies of Neurotransmitter Receptors in the Human Brain".
