TwoNeurotransmitters: Serotonin is a neural transmitter primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain's reward and pleasure centers. Dopamine also helps regulate movement and emotional responses, and it enables us not only to see rewards, but to take action to move toward them.
