Serotonin: Molecule of Connection

Serotonin: Molecule of Connection
June 12 at 7:00 pm EDT with 1-week recording available


In the popular imagination, serotonin is the "happiness chemical." But this molecule is far more complex than that descriptor suggests. An ancient compound first created by bacteria at the time when life on Earth had just begun to breathe, serotonin is first and foremost a molecule of connection. Serotonin flows and synaptic networks branch in fractal patterns that resemble the patterns in nature. It opens the gates that allow sensory information to flow in, and helps us recognize complex patterns in the world around us. In this class, we will look at the roles serotonin and structurally similar compounds play in the plant and fungal realms, and how these insights can help us understand the true nature of this neurotransmitter in our own bodies.
