Mouse Party Neural Data Matrix
The simplified mechanisms of drug action are presented. When drugs enter the body they elicit very complex effects in many different regions of the brain.
Often they interact with many different types of neurotransmitters and may bind with a variety of receptor types in a variety of different locations. For example,
THC in marijuana can bind with cannabinoid receptors on the presynaptic and/or postsynaptic cell in a synapse.
