Monoamine Hypothesis
/ 1 of 1

Double-sided, reconfigurable poster explaining the monoamine hypothesis, a commonly accepted medical theory that attributes mental illnesses like depression, schizophrenia, and ADHD to chemical imbalances in the brain of the monoamine neurotransmitters serotonin (5-HT), dopamine (DA), and norepinephrine (NE).

Poster can be folded or divided to display information exclusive to a given topic: left column depression, right column schizophrenia + ADHD; top row serotonin, middle row norepinephrine, and bottom row dopamine. Reverse serves as overview and folding guide.

Designed under the instruction of Nancy Skolos at RISD.
