ID Chemical Name 0 <NONE>

Drive levels... 1 Pain 2 Need for Pleasure 3 Hunger 4 Coldness 5 Hotness 6 Tiredness 7 Sleepiness 8 Loneliness 9 Crowded 10 Fear 11 Boredom 12 Anger 13 Sex Drive

Drive-raising chemicals... 17 Pain Increase 18 Need for Pleasure Increase 19 Hunger Increase 20 Coldness Increase 21 Hotness Increase

22 Tiredness Increase 23 Sleepiness Increase 24 Loneliness Increase 25 Crowded Increase 26 Fear Increase 27 Boredom Increase 28 Anger Increase 29 Sex Drive Increase

Drive-reducing chemicals... 33 Pain Decrease (Endorphin) 34 Need for Pleasure Decrease 35 Hunger Decrease (Saccharin)

Saccharin is a sweetener only. It has no nutritional value (unlike carbohydrate) but satisfies hunger. (hi sugar lo carb = junk food!)

36 Coldness Decrease 37 Hotness Decrease 38 Tiredness Decrease 39 Sleepiness Decrease 40 Loneliness Decrease 41 Crowded Decrease 42 Fear Decrease 43 Boredom Decrease 44 Anger Decrease 45 Sex Drive Decrease

49 Reward

learning reinforcer

50 Punishment

learning reinforcer

51 Reinforcement

Both punishment and reward chemicals decay to produce this short-life chemical. It allows e.g. concept space dens to get stronger when ANY form of reinforcement occurs

52 ConASH

Concept layer Atrophy Suppressing Hormone - emitted by loose CON NEUS - stops further con neu dens from atrophying, thus ensuring a minimal supply of unallocated cells for new concepts.

53 DecASH1

Decision layer Atrophy Suppressing Hormone - emitted by loose DEC DENS (type0) - stops further dec dens from atrophying, thus ensuring a minimal supply of unallocated dens for new associations.

54 Reward Echo

Reward chemical must decay rapidly, this longer lasting chemical is generated during that decay. Useful chemical to monitor to see if reward has occurred. Biochemical use as a measure of 'recent' reward.

55 Punish Echo

Punishment chemical must decay rapidly, this longer lasting chemical is generated during that decay. Useful chemical to monitor to see if punishment has occurred. Biochemical use as a measure of 'recent' punishment.

56 Ageing

Decays over time, switching on receptors to change the stage of life from embryo through to senile. Stage changes then switch on new genes.

57 Starch

Emitted by food objects - converts to Glucose for energy. Does NOT decrease hunger - this is done directly by Hunger-- (saccharin), so that junk food can contain high saccharin levels but low starch, etc.

58 Glucose

Produced from starch and in a reversible reaction from glycogen. Used up by muscle action.

59 Glycogen

LIFE FORCE. Long-term energy reserve, produced in reversible reaction from glucose. Produces Glucose to replenish supplies for muscle action. Absence of Glycogen is life threatening.

60 Waste Water

Waste product from the conversion of glucose to energy. May deplete naturally, or may cause behaviour changes!!!

61 Hexokinase

Enzyme. Converts glucose to Urea during the production of energy. Emitted by muscles as they demand energy. Consumed in the reaction to prevent residue.

62 Carbon Dioxide

CO2 is produced by muscle action. It's a useful indicator of short-term average energy consumption and could be used to simulate heart rate or similar data for plots.

63 Oestrogen

Controls fertility cycle in females

64 Testosterone

Controls fertility in males

65 Gonadotrophin

Produced immediately when pregnant in large quantities. Used to e.g. suppress menstrual cycle.

66 Progesterone

Produced progressively during pregnancy. When it reaches a threshold, it fires a receptor to cause the egg to be laid.

67 Glycotoxin

Extreme poison - breaks down Glycogen. Fatal if glycogen falls to zero.

68 Alcohol

Ingested from fermented fruit etc. Causes drunken gait and possible sickness, etc.

69 Adrenaline

Natural adrenaline level builds up due to stress from excessive boredom, anger and suchlike. Has various deleterious effects on health.

70 DecASH2

Decision layer Atrophy Suppressing Hormone - emitted by loose DEC DENS (type1) - stops further dec dens from atrophying, thus ensuring a minimal supply of unallocated dens for new associations.

71 Vitamin E

Fat Soluble vitamin, deficiency can cause infertility.

72 Vitamin C

Water soluble vitamin, used to maintain healthy connective tissue.

IV Chemicals

100 Energy 101 Adrenaline 102 Pain Killer 103 Cough Medicine 104 Sleeping Pill 105 Wake-up Pill 106 Anti-oxidant

232 Histamine A

produced by some bacteria; causes sneezing (thus making disease contagious)

233 Histamine B

as for histamine A, but causes coughing instead of sneezing

234 Sleep toxin

produced by some bacteria; causes sleepiness

235 Fever toxin

produced by some bacteria; raises body temperature

Antibodies to bacteria

240 Antibody 0 241 Antibody 1 242 Antibody 2 243 Antibody 3 244 Antibody 4 245 Antibody 5 246 Antibody 6 247 Antibody 7

Present on infecting bacteria - causes antibody production 248 Antigen 0 249 Antigen 1 250 Antigen 2 251 Antigen 3 252 Antigen 4 253 Antigen 5 254 Antigen 6 255 Antigen 7
