Highlights of Bison Hunting and Raspberries

Dopamine helps us survive and feel good. But, if we have abnormal levels of it in the system dopamine will “hack” our brains and make us continue doing things that we don’t even really enjoy. Check out the highlights for details:

  • Dopamine is produced by the brain as a survival mechanism
  • In the early days, bison hunting or finding raspberries caused a dopamine release
  • Abnormal levels of dopamine “hacks” your brain and causes you to want more
  • Find out how alcohol affects dopamine levels
  • What do addictive substances have in common?
  • Why your brain thinks you can’t survive without addictive substances

There’s More!
