Adrenaline MicroZine

I chose to research the Adrenaline (also known as Epinephrine) neurotransmitter because I had heard of adrenaline as a hormone and never knew it was also a neurotransmitter. I found out a lot about both my neurotransmitter and different parts of the brain and different receptors by researching adrenaline. Adrenaline is an excitatory neurotransmitter that is found in the sympathetic nervous system, which is a part of the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous system helps to maintain homeostasis. Therefore, adrenaline is used to cure patients that suffer from cardiac arrest, extreme allergies or breathing problems. I am not necessarily an artist, so I struggled a bit with the assignment. I wanted to express the information in a concise way. Also, I aimed my MicroZine at an older audience because some of the information is complex and would not be understood, for example, by a child. I hope you all like it! Adrenaline MicroZine
