Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter related to dopamine and norepinephrine. Monoamines have important functions in the human body including modulating sleep, hormones, body temperature, pain, and psychomotor functions like cognition, mood, learning, and memory. They are also involved in cardiovascular, respiratory, and gastrointestinal control. Serotonin, in particular, is critical for feelings of happiness and well-being, and its metabolism is a target for drugs treating depression.
