How can I get the the chemical acid structure in the brain of
different animals, birds, insect.
animals like horse,gorilla,tortoise{terrapin}, kangaroo,binturong,giraffe,tapir
[pig},pussy cat,hyena,brown
dragon,giant armadilles,frog,capy bare e.t.c.

I still need information on sites that can really help in getting such
structures. Plz

Perhaps if you post separate questions for each animal you are
interested in, you may have better luck. I would suggest, therefore,
you split your questions up, as you have listed many animals, and
researchers may find it difficult to find information on the brain
chemistry of all the animals you've mentioned.
If the link I posted on Octopus chemical acid structure was useful,
then you may post a separate question addressing it to me
[jackburton-ga], and I can claim the fee for the research I did for
this particular animal. Or you can reset the price of this question to
a lower amount, and I can post an answer in the answer box. It's up to
If you need assistance in determining what price to set for each
question, go to GA's FAQ page, and see "Pricing a Question":
Hope that helps!

Just give for the animals you can and i will rate your answer. do't worry.

We would certainly need more specific information as to what you mean
by "chemical acid structure" in the brain.  There are all sorts of
acids that are not only in the brain but in the entire body.  There
are also many chemicals that are only found in the brain- is this what
you would like to learn about?  Altogether, there are hundreds of
compounds that we could be talking about, so please clarify. 
Furthermore, what do you mean by "structure"?  The actual molecular
structure of the chemical?  The structure where the chemical is
produced?  That would be necessary as well.  Thanks.

Plz, the only way I can explain is to give an example of what I want.
An example is found here:
That structure by the left.

OK.  What you showed an example of is what is called simply the
"molecular structure" or "expanded molecular formula".  So now we know
what type of information you're looking for.  However, in order to
help you, we still need to be more specific: as I said before, between
different types of animals (or even easily within a single species)
there are literally THOUSANDS of compounds that can be represented
with this type of diagram.  Also, you should know that a vast majority
of the chemicals and neurotransmitters found within the brains of
these animals are exactly the same.  Really!  So what are you looking
for?  Neurotransmitters found in the brians of all of these animals?
Acids generally found in the body, not necessarily in the brain?  Just
chemicals that are EXCLUSIVE to these particular animals?  We need to
know if we're going to help you.

Thats what I want. Then give me as many as you can and name the
animals you gave so I can know those remaining or you tell me how to
search for it myself and get the right answer. Thanks!

Hi Leobeno!

These are most of the well-known neurotransmitters, however many other
compounds, at least 50, have been recognized as having some similar
effect on the central nervous system.  The links below each go to a
page with the appropriate molecular structure on it.

[ ]

[ ]

[ ]

[ ]

Some amino acids have known effects as neurotransmitters.  These
include Glycine, Aspartate, Gama-Aminobutyric Acid, Phenylalanine, and
Glutamate.  These can be found here among other amino acids:
[ ]

Epinephrine (AKA Adrenaline)
[ ]

Norepinephrine (AKA Noradrenaline)
[ ]

Nitric Oxide
[ ]

There are also other neurotransmitters that are categorized as
neuropeptides, which are long chains of amino acids, however they have
structures that are far too complicated to represent in a simple
diagram like the above.

As stated before, most of these are not specific to a particular
animal, but rather would be found in most vertebrates.  If you are
really desperate for neurotransmitters specific to an animal, you can
try searching for some yourself: try a search string such as:
[animal name] [neurotransmitter name] [structure]

I trust this information is what you require, as described by the
question clarifications before.  If a clarification of the answer is
necessary, feel free to request one, especially before rating this
answer.  Thanks for bringing your question to us!
