MDA makes the brain to release some chemicals like:

(1) Norepinephrine

This is one of the chemicals your body produces and it sends signal between nerves, it is also known as noradrenaline. It’s function in the body is to maintain blood pressure by regulating blood vessels when the body is stressed.

It also makes you more alert, attentive and aroused. When your body is stressed or your brain senses danger, your nerves sends signal to your spinal cord and other parts of the body and norepinephrine transmits these signal and cause your body parts to react.

(2) Dopamine

This is another transmitter your body makes and its function is to send messages between nerve cells. That you feel pleasure, focus and find things and activities interesting is because of this chemical messenger.

Some researches suggest that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) results when there is shortage of dopamine. Dopamine performs function like controlling vomiting and nausea, mood, sleep, learning and even movement. In fact, that you are able to process pain is due to the presence of this transmitter.
