Ingredients of life

Illustrations of Chemical compounds by Rex

An ultra-cool set of posters! Dopamine is the one I am most familiar with and it’s a very interesting chemical not only because it causes our emotional responses, but because it controls the ‘reward system’ of our brain which in turn motivates us to repeat actions that we enjoy (even if they are not good for our overall health, as is the case with chemical addiction).

But rather than dwelling too much on the more serious effects of these chemical responses, focus more on the greatness of the posters!
