Brain

Number Name Description
52 Reward learning reinforcer
53 Punishment learning reinforcer
54 Reinforcement Both punishment and reward chems decay to produce this short-life chemical. It allows eg. concept space dens to get stronger when ANY form of reinforcement occurs
55 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.
56 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.
57 Reward Echo Reward chem must decay rapidly, this longer lasting chem is generated during that decay. Useful chem to monitor to see if reward has occurred. Biochemical use as a measure of 'recent' reward.
58 Punish Echo Punishment chem must decay rapidly, this longer lasting chem is generated during that decay. Useful chem to monitor to see if punishment has occurred. Biochemical use as a measure of 'recent' punishment.
59 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.

Digestive

Number Name Description
68 Lactate Product of fermentation of pyruvate. Causes muscle burn
69 Pyruvate An intermediate, the product of anaerobic respiration
70 Glucose Produced from starch and in a reversible reaction from glycogen. Used up by muscle action.
71 Fatty Acid Building Block
72 Glycogen Short-term energy reserve, produced in reversible reaction from glucose. Produces glucose to replenish supplies for muscle action.
73 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.
74 Fat Food source of Fatty Acid
75 Adipose Tissue High-density Carbon Storage in Albian Lifeforms
76 Life Decays over time, switching on receptors to change the stage of life from embryo through to senile. Stage changes then switch on new genes.
77 Muscle Tissue Amino Acid storage
78 Triglyceride First step in forming Adipose Tissue
79 Protein Food source of Amino Acid
80 Amino Acid Building Block

Number Name Description
90 Dissolved carbon dioxide Waste product from the conversion of glucose to energy. May deplete naturally, or may cause behaviour changes!!!
91
92 Urea Non-toxic product of Carbon Dioxide and Ammonia
93 Ammonia Toxic product of using Amino Acid for fuel
94 94
95 Oxygen Vital Gas
96 Air Signals Breathable Air

102 Oxymyoglobin oxygen transporting chemical, with oxygen
103
104 Bilin Signal to produce bile acid

Fertility and Social

105 Oestrogen Controls fertility cycle in females 106 Testosterone Controls fertility in males 107 Gonadotrophin Produced immediately in large quantities when pregnant. Used to eg. suppress menstrual cycle. 108 Progesterone Produced progressively during pregnancy. When it reaches a threshold, it fires a receptor to cause the egg to be laid. 109 Inhibin Testosterone feedback 110 LH Signals Ovulation 111 FSH Controls oestrogen production 112 Steroidone Idealized signal to make steroids from fatty acids 113 Cholesterol Vital Steroid 114 Arousal Potential Biological readiness to mate 115 Mating Pheramone Turns potential arousal into arousal (sex drive) 116 Species Pheramone Species recognition signal 117 Parent Pheramone Parental recognition signal 118 Child Pheramone Child recognition signal 119 Sibling Pheramone Sibling recognition signal 120 Opposite Sex Pheramone Opposite sex recognition signal 121 Norn Smell A signal that a Norn is near 122 Grendel smell A signal that a Grendel is near 123 Ettin smell A signal that an Ettin is near 124 124 125 125 126 126 127 127 128 128 129 129 130 130 131 131 132 132 133 133 134 134 135 135 136 136 137 137 138 138 139 139
