Definition
a neurotransmitter associated with sleep, depression, and memory
  • A mood is a compound of neurotransmitters: Too much acetylcholine, not enough serotonin, and you've got a depression.
  • It's a long way from not having enough serotonin to thinking the world is "stale, flat and unprofitable",— even further to writing a play about a man driven by that thought.
  • It never says, "You're a little depressed because your serotonin level has dropped.
  • The world in this case means everything out-or inside our bodies, including serotonin levels in the brain.
  • Then all the dendrites and neurons and serotonin levels and interpreters collect themselves and trot over to the corner.

There are no more uses of "serotonin" in Girl Interrupted.
