Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that communicate information throughout our brain and body. They relay signals between nerve cells called “neurons.” The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest.

In his TED Talk he gives us a glimpse into how the brain creates the grace and agility of human motion.Elliot Krane works on the problem of treating children with pain at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.
