The substance - a.k.a. "motivation hormone"

In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter — a chemical released by neurons (nerve cells) to send signals to other nerve cells. The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. Most types of rewards increase the level of dopamine in the brain, and many addictive substances increase dopamine neuronal activity.

Dopamine was first synthesized in 1910 by George Barger and James Ewens at Wellcome Laboratories in London, England and first identified in the human brain by Kathleen Montagu in 1957. It was named dopamine because it is a monoamine whose precursor in the Barger-Ewens synthesis is 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (levodopa or L-DOPA).

Common names

Dopamine, DA, 2-(3,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)ethylamine, 3,4-Dihydroxyphenethylamine, 3-Hydroxytyramine, Oxytyramine, Prolactin inhibiting factor/hormone, Intropin, Revivan.
