Understanding the effects of one’s balance of neurotransmitters opens the door to recognizing the causes behind certain feelings and courses of actions. Brain in Balance provides a big-picture look at how the brain works and contains comprehensive yet concise explanations and illustrations that summarize how neurotransmitter systems are affected by both genetics and environmental factors.
