Neurotransmitters affect emotions and behavior. At present there have been discovered over 108 different neurotransmitters that interact, stimulating and inhibiting the activities of each other. " five of these neurotransmitters act throughout most of these brain: histamine, serotonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and acetylcholine" ( peterson, 2007 [inside the investor's brain: The power of mind over money]) " Additionally, local actions of opiods, norepinerprhine, stress hormones and Omega 3 Fatty acids affect behavior and decision making. And if this weren't enough, common medications, street drugs, and foods also should be considered for the neural affect on the judgement."

Many pathological mood states such as depression, mania, anxiety and obsession, neurological conditions such as parkinson's dicease and alzhimer's and impulse control disorders such as kleptomania, compulsive shopping and pathological gambling are known to affect financial decision making. Depression is associated with risk aversion, mania with investing overconfidence, anxiety with "analysis paralysis" and compulsions with over trading. Interstingly all these disorders can be treated with medications.
