--- Auto-Generated Description ---
This diagram models a neurochemical reward system, illustrating the complex interactions between dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, cortisol, and desire within the human body. The system begins with source nodes representing various neurochemicals and an interactive action node. These sources feed into pool nodes labeled with the names of the neurochemicals (Dopamine, Noradrenalin, Serotonin, Cortisol) and a Desire pool. The flow of resources between these pools and toward drain nodes simulates the consumption of neurochemicals, representing processes such as homeostasis satisfaction and the dissipation of stress. The model also features automatic and interval-based resource transfers, state connections that modify the flow based on conditions (such as the production and dissolution rates of neurochemicals, and the triggering of further actions), and end conditions reflecting decision points like "Give up".

The setting reveals a system dynamic where actions trigger the release of dopamine, which in turn activates noradrenaline production. Noradrenaline drives the anticipation of serotonin production, a reward feedback loop, while also stimulating cortisol production, associated with stress and the urge to act. Drains symbolize the consumption or dissipation of these neurochemicals, mirroring the body's return to neurochemical equilibrium or homeostasis satisfaction. The interactive elements and conditions incorporated into the diagram suggest a feedback mechanism that could represent addictive behaviors, stress responses, or other psychological and physiological processes related to the neurochemical reward system, emphasizing the balance—or imbalance—that actions can create within the system.
