Dopamine (DA) is a neurotransmitter in the brain, which controls feelings of wellbeing. This sense of wellbeing results from the interaction of DA and neurotransmitters such as serotonin, the opioids, and other brain chemicals. Low serotonin levels are associated with depression. High levels of the opioids (the brains opium) are also associated with a sense of wellbeing. Moreover, DA receptors, a class of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), have been targeted for drug development for the treatment of neurological, psychiatric and ocular disorders. DA has been called the anti-stress and/or pleasure molecule, but this has been recently debated by Salamone and Correa and Sinha. The Journal of Steroids & Hormonal Science publishes the papers related to Hyperglycemia. The journal is open access where the content is available freely for the readers and the papers which will be published are assessed by experts for the quality. The unofficial impact factor for the journal is 3.125.
