A neurotransmitter is a neurogenic chemical in the brain of a lifeform (humanoids for example) found inside neurons. These chemicals facilitate the transmission of neural energy between synapses.

When Captain Jean-Luc Picard was under the influence of the Kataan probe, his neurotransmitter production was off the scale, presumably because his brain was processing Kamin's lifetime of memories in a very short time. (TNG: "The Inner Light")

In 2371, when Tom Paris was sent to Sickbay when his memories were thought to be tampered, The Doctor checked his neurotransmitter levels. (VOY: "Cathexis")
