Tutor description

The molecular structure is unlike that of any known transmitter but it does not seem related to steroids(similar to testosterone and estradiol that seem to be involved in depression. (Palfai & Jankiewicz 1991). Cannabinoids are increased by the synthesis of catecholamines in the brain through a direct action on neurons. There is also a decrease in Ach synthesis. The greatest density of cannabinoids are found in the basal ganglia, hippocampus, and cerebellum (Palfai & Jankiewicz 1991).
