Creative brain is central to human existence and its maintenance is of a paramount issue to the global peace, security and development. The preceding assertion can be achieved through neuroscience which is the science that has to do with substances that affect the brain especially, the cerebral part of the brain that determines the intelligence of organism which deals with how organism interacts with each other in their ecosystem. Many studies have linked low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin to depression, impulsive and aggressive forms of behaviour, violence and even suicide. Neurochemistry literacy can help control these forms of behaviour by educating people on danger of low serotonin to avoid getting into acts capable of causing conflict or breakdown of law and order. This study further x-rays the place of neuroscience especially neurochemistry as an aspect of knowledge through which creative brain conveys its numerous gifts and blessing to humanity. It also highlights challenges facing neurochemistry and recommends possible solutions.
