In cooperation with receptors in the brain, neurotransmitters regulate processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels. Neurotransmitters are the brain’s chemical messengers. They facilitate communication among the body’s glands, organs, and muscles. The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest.
