Bipolar Disorder Clinical research has attempted to uncover the possible mechanism underlying its pathophysiology of it. Based on the research, scientists believe that the depressive or manic behavior seen in people with it is caused due to the altered synthesis, storage, or release of the neurotransmitters in the brain.

The levels of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine are lower during the depressive episode and higher during the manic episode. Importantly the concentrations of these neurotransmitters are much lower during a depression that occurs in it than in unipolar depression.
