_____________ is a Neurotransmitter than stimulates the skeletal muscles and acts primarily on the parasympathetic nervous system. It is mainly found in the brain and helps with memory.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 2
    _____________ are Neurotransmitters that are involved in sleep, motor function, mood and pleasure. Two types are Epinephrine and Norepinephrine.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 3
    A Neurotransmitter found in the brain and ANS, known as a 'feel-good transmitter' is the ____________.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 4
    Considered a stimulant, this Neurotransmitter is released by the mast cells as part of the inflammatory process. It can also play a role in emotions and stimulate pain receptors.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 5
    This Neurotransmitter usually works as an inhibitor in the CNS, and effects biological cycles, sleep, and moods. Can also be described as a 'feel-good receptor'.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 6
    The Neurotransmitter that is generally inhibitory and found in the brain is the _____________.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 7
    This Neurotransmitter is generally excitatory and is found in the CNS, it is thought to be responsible for as much as 75% of the excitatory signals in the brain.
  • Dopamine
  • Catecholamines
  • Serotonin
  • Acetylcholine
  • Histamine
  • Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid
  • Glutamate
  • 8
    These Neurotransmitters are found in the brain, retina, and gastrointestinal tract, the function is still unlear.
  • Cholecystokinin
  • Substance P
  • Endorphins & Enkephalins
  • Somatostatin
  • Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide
  • 9
    _______________ are endogenous morphines that block the brain from feelin pain and is generally inhibitory.
  • Cholecystokinin
  • Substance P
  • Endorphins & Enkephalins
  • Somatostatin
  • Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide
  • 10
    This Neurotransmitter inhibits the release of growth hormone and is a gut-brain peptide.
  • Cholecystokinin
  • Substance P
  • Endorphins & Enkephalins
  • Somatostatin
  • Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide
  • 11
    _____________ is found in the brain, some ANS and sensory fibers, retina, and GI tract, and its function is unclear.
  • Cholecystokinin
  • Substance P
  • Endorphins & Enkephalins
  • Somatostatin
  • Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide
  • 12
    ___________ is excitatory and is found in the brain, spinal cord, sensory pain pathways, and GI tract. It transmits pain information.
  • Cholecystokinin
  • Substance P
  • Endorphins & Enkephalins
  • Somatostatin
  • Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide
