Integrative mental health: Simple approaches to complex pathways
Kelly C. Heim, Ph.D. and James Greenblatt, M.D.
The human mind is orchestrated by large networks of neurons. Like any type of network, proper function depends on the coordinated efficiency and accuracy of communication. In the brain, a language of chemical messengers allows high-fidelity neuronal conversations that enable us to think, learn, remember, and experience emotion. Known as neurotransmitters, these compounds are critical for emotional wellness, cognitive performance and behavioral health.
