Scientists from the University Upali proved that the majority of social phobia in the brain is marked pathologically high levels of serotonin. The more neurotransmitter in the body, the more pronounced the symptoms of this psychological disorder. The discovery completely changes the idea of social phobia and gives you the chance to develop new medicines against the fear of society, says Psych Central.
In people with social phobia are recorded elevated levels of serotonin in the amygdala of the brain. This area is responsible for the feeling of fear. Using special equipment, scientists have studied the effect of serotonin on the brain.
First, the serotonin binds to the receptor, then detaches and falls back into the nerve cell. When the frequency of social phobia interaction "serotonin receptor" is increased, which leads to pathological manifestations.
