What is Bipolar Disorder?
Bipolar Disorder is a mental health disorder that causes extreme transitions in mood from depression to mania. Mania is the state of extreme hyperactivity. Bipolar Disorder affects men, women, and children. It usually begins ages 15-20. Bipolar Disorder, also known as Manic Depression, attacks the hippocampus at the bottom of the brain. The hippocampus is the part of your brain that controls your emotions.
Science behind bipolar disorder
Noradrenaline, Serotonin, and Dopamine are all brain chemicals that are involved with Bipolar Disorder. The brain chemical serotonin is connected to many bodily functions such as sleep, wakefulness, eating, hyper sexuality, impulsiveness, learning, and memory.
History behind bipolar disorder
Bipolar disorder was discovered in 1875 by Jules Gabriel Francois Baillarger in Greece. It was formally called "manic depression." Bipolar Disorder was frowned upon, people with Bipolar Disorder were shocked with electric eels and tortured in many different ways. Some symptoms of Bipolar disorder are mania and depression, that is where the name "manic depression" came from, (mania and depression.)
