What causes our brain to react to something in a motivated or dejected fashion?

In: Biology

literally dopamine.

two mains ones I’ll discuss (jus know there are many at play) are: Dopamine and Cortisol.

when we do something we enjoy like laughing while watching television, our brains release this neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Dopamine makes us feel all good inside.

when something happens that we don’t like, our brains release cortisol. like when we experience physical pain or whatnot. Cortisol is responsible for being like “wow, I kind of hate that, Imma avoid doing any of that stuff again”.

obviously over-simplified. but, you kind of get the drift, hopefully.
