Endorphins are produced naturally by the nervous system and are often called as 'feel good chemicals'. They are secreted by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. They act as 'pain reliever' or 'happiness booster'. They act similar to opioid drugs which are use for relieving pain. Low levels of endorphins can cause depression or fibromyalgia.

Motor neuron diseases, also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis(ALS) are characterised by the death of motor neurons. The studies show that the neurons change in size as the disease progresses. This has a significant effect on their function and fate.
This understanding on the mechanism of changing size of neurons aids in slowing or halting the death of motor neurons of the nervous system.
