and some can cross the blood-brain barrier.
The artificial cell is made from an electricity-conducting plastic and can deliver different kinds of neurotransmitter

It's a sense that early relapse with subsequent need for escalating doses is more common today with SSRIs than when patients were treated with tricyclic antidepressants and other agents affecting multiple neurotransmitters
The pharmacology of all SSRIs is in some ways similar to that of other antidepressants, such as the tricyclic antidepressant compounds (TCAs), which block the reuptake of various neurotransmitters
. However, as the name implies, SSRI drugs are highly selective reuptake inhibitors and have little effect on other neurotransmitters
, such as norepinephrine or dopamine.
