Dr. Bennett Machanic answered

Specializes in Neurology

Neurotransmitters are both inhibitory and excitatory, and exist to balance appropriately, the infinite entering signals from outside activity, and respond motorically as appropriate. These are chemicals which are secreted in the synapse which connects nerve to nerve, but also nerve to muscle, sweat glands, etc.
