Zomig Serotonin Receptor Agonist
An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change. Eyes receive light, touch receptors send messages to the brain when stimulated by pressure and estrogen receptors bind Estradiol causing responses of normal breast, ovary and uterus cells to rising and falling levels of the female steroid hormones. Most of the time "receptor" refers to one ...Read more

Also people may have different levels of receptors without meds, thrill seekers needing more Dopamine release to feel a charge, . ...Read more
Way too simplistic: Your brain isn't a 4-cylinder Chevy, where 1 circuit controls 1 function. There are dozens of serotonin receptor subtypes organized into 3 subfamilies.
