The Power of Dopamine: A Comprehensive Guide on How it Influences Your Mind and Body

Dopamine is involved in learning attention and memory when we do something and it's beneficial in some way and if we're interested in it- and that's one of the things that I teach when I teach adult learning theory- if people are not interested in something, they are not going to be able to pay attention nearly as well, and it's likely not going to move from short-term to long-term memory, because you have to care about what you're learning.
