Serotonin and impulsive behaviours

Serotonin and impulsive behaviours

Research suggests patience - along with impulse control - can be linked to specific neurological systems.

A previous study showed a possible link between a lack of serotonin receptors in the brain and impulsive behaviours. Another study went further by researching the role of the DRN (dorsal raphe nucleus) in the brain that contains serotonin-releasing neurons. During this study, they found a casual relationship serotonin has on the DRN region and the patience for anticipated rewards.
