Stay Awake with Dopamine

Stay Awake with Dopamine

This neurotransmitter is affected by N Acetyltyrosine, DL Phenylaline, and ExcitaCor

For the body to be able to function at its optimum, it has been said time and again that we need to sleep at least 8 hours a day. But in this day in age where there’s a lot to do, both work related and not, completing that 8 hour cycle becomes close to impossible, there will always come a point where we deprive ourselves of sleep. But there is a chemical substance naturally produced by the body that helps us get through those sleep deprived days and keep us alive and kicking to do the things we need to do: Dopamine.


Dopamine is formed in numerous regions of the brain as a neurotransmitter that is established on different kind of animals. Its functions on humans are less greatly understood compared on its task in reward-seeking actions and reward learning is finely established on the studies of animals. 


Dopamine is also linked with the Ventral Tegmental, an area in the brain that causes motivation stimuli and sometimes called as pleasure molecule. This neurotransmitter increases when we encounter things that we find to be pleasurable or rewarding. Dopamine level changes are thought of to be linked with addiction because of this property.


New researches and findings suggest that dopamine may naturally increase when a person deprives himself of sleep, counteracting the drive to sleep. Some people cope with being sleep deprived better than others and that extent to which dopamine rises in the brain after sleep loss is linked to the variability in people's abilities to cope with sleep deprivation.


The rise in dopamine levels after being sleep deprived may promote wakefulness however, the decline in cognitive performance which is also associated with the increase in dopamine is suggestive that the adaptation is insufficient to overcome other sleep deprivation effects like cognitive weakening.
