Dopamine & Adrenaline

Message  gerardM le Lun 19 Aoû - 23:01

Hi everyone,

Today, I began reading an article about explorers and what their skills were, and why these persons kept exploring, and that they were at their top over 40-50...

I need your help to understand.

I read dopamine and adrenaline were 2 neurotransmitters that must not be mixed up.

As far as I understood,
- adrenaline is the chemical of excitement, daily needed by many people who think it's a fuel. Thus, it's the challenge at work, people like violence, etc. adrenaline would be a chemical secreted in case of fear, in case of danger... in fact, it would be kinda narcotics and dangerous.
- dopamine is the chemical of reward, satisfaction.
It's the chemical used by explorers, the chemical which allows them to go past danger and ahead.
Explorers master their domain, they know the dangers and deal with it, go beyond as they are trained.

Please, couls anyone better explain?

Please feel free to point out big mistakes in my messages in a foreign language. Thanks to your remarks, I'll be able to improve my level.
PS: Pls note that I chose American English for my vocabulary, grammar, spelling, culture, etc.  :-)
