Serotonin is also known as 'Happiness Hormone’ which helps in triggering award system of our brain. To explain how it works for our body, let’s see the example. A man decides to play a poker game on his digital gadget. While playing he makes a good move, his good move will result in the profit. This will trigger the serotonin in this body and motivate the man to play even further.

The next move the man made is wrong and that resulted in the loss of the profit. This will trigger serotonin again in minimal amount but this time it will trigger the negative emotions. On the base of which he will decide to play further or continue. If at the end of the game the man is the winner this will increase his serotonin and will be helpful to his next decision to play a game further or not.
