The body's biggest producer of serotonin being in the gut, serotonin produced outside of the brain can't be used by the brain but if serotonin levels are high enough in the body it will trigger a chemical reaction and our brains start to produce it.

We are born with the ability to swim; born the most dependent mammal babies bit we can hold our breath and swim. Infants know not to crawl off the edge. Human babies, without the ability to see color, can get the attention of everything around them.
It's in the blood.

Emotional Health: The Power Of Emotions On Disease Outcomes
Want to “Beat” Cancer? End the Fight
by Kelly Brogan, MD

"Overall, women with higher levels of emotional acceptance showed lower levels of IL-8 and lower sickness symptoms.
The data goes on to show that emotional acceptance disrupts the association between pro-inflammatory cytokines and sickness behavior; when a woman increased her emotional acceptance, her sickness symptoms became independent of her cytokines."

The translation of emotions to physiology is becoming less and less “woo woo” and more and more scientifically validated. A landmark study1 of women with breast cancer was recently published that provides even more evidence of the power of emotions on disease outcomes.

In this study, researchers measured markers of inflammation called cytokines and correlated them with people’s emotional states. Cytokines are potent signaling proteins that direct cells to act in certain ways. This study focused on pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and IL-18.

These cytokines are elevated in cancer patients and can contribute to symptoms of “sickness behavior” like fatigue, chronic pain, and nausea.2 This sickness behavior not only diminishes a person’s quality of life, but also saps physical resources that are needed to heal. Interestingly, these cytokines are also elevated in people who suffer from social isolation or negative emotions.3

Sadly, the very process of being diagnosed with cancer creates a surge of pro-inflammatory cytokines4 and has been referred to as medical hexing. However, previous research has shown that using strategies for emotional acceptance leads to lowered distress,5 closer relationships, and increased survival following a breast cancer diagnosis.6 Emotional acceptance is the process by which a person allows emotions – both positive and negative – to emerge and dissipate without attempts to control, change, or reject these emotions.

Fortunately, in this study, researchers recognized this harmful side effect of cancer diagnoses and taught patients an emotional regulation technique to influence their feelings before, during, or after their diagnoses.7 Ultimately, these researchers wanted to know if emotional acceptance caused measurable changes on the molecular level.

I'm growing tired of the cartoons.
What follows is a series of lectures, not so much concerned with Neuroscience, rather, the perception of existing sciences.
