Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) is the area that synthesizes dopamine, which then sends to nucleus accumbens. Nucelus accumbens is the pleasure center, and it is stimulated by the neurotransmitter dopamine from VTA. VTA also sends dopamine to prefrontal cortex which regulates and controls these impulses. The locus coeruleus is the area packed with norepinephrine; and when stimulated by a lack of the addictive substance, will drives the person to do anything necessary to obtain a fix.

Researchers pinpoint brain region as ‘ground zero’ of Alzheimer’s disease The locus coeruleus is a small part of the brainstem that releases the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating heart rate, attention, memory and cognition.

-A critical but vulnerable region in the brain, the locus coeruleus (pictured in blue), is subject to damage decades before symptoms of dementia appear, scientists have discovered

Figure 1 Schematic representation of a parasagittal section of the human brain, showing the neuroanatomical projections involved in parasympathetic nervous system activation for neuroprotection. ( A ) Afferent vagus nerve pathway (represented by deep blue color ): Afferent vagus nerve neurons synapse bilaterally on the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) in the medulla oblongata. The NTS makes projections to various brain structures including the locus coeruleus (LC), which is the main source…
