a neurotransmitter that gives us a happy disposition when adequately supplied.

The dark-induced effects
may stem from a disruption of the body’s clock. When an organism’s
circadian system is not receiving normal light, that in turn might
lead to changes in brain systems that regulate mood. He is an
excellent researcher and he has to do with various other researchers
in specialized areas.
