Dopamine (DA) is an essential neurotransmitter and hormone of the nervous system, its structural and conformational properties play critical roles in biological functions and signal transmission processes.
Results suggest that each THz resonant absorption peak of DA corresponds to specific vibrational modes, and the collective vibration also exists in the broadband THz range.
The results indicate the dominant role of Terahertz waves in Dopamine is hydrogen bonding.
In another study about THz and Dopamine researchers found that THz wave could reduce the affinity of major side effects of antipsychotics by 71%!!!
