Ever Wonder How Adderall Makes Your Brain All Awesome?
How does adderall work?
Basically by making your dopamine and your brain receptors fuck. For an extended period of time. You see, it’s not just the amphetamines — it totally is the amphetamines — that make you able to study for hours.
It’s that sometimes when our dopamine levels are low, we seek out things that provide us pleasure (read: distractions, because basically anything is better than doing work). Amphetamine molecules flood the brain with dopamine, keeping you satisfied and complacent while you read, read read.
Also, today I learned that American, British, German and Japanese soldiers were all hopped up on amphetamines during World War II. No wonder it was so awesome!
