When exposed to stress or a cognitively challenging task, catecholamine neurons become more active and their synthesis rate increases. As more neurotransmitters are synthesized to meet the situational demands, the resource from which they are synthesized, precursors are expended. Synthesis becomes limited once precursors runs low, leading to less neurotransmitter availability and corresponding decrements in performance. In this situation Amino acid precursor might benefit brain function by providing the resources necessary to allow neurotransmitter synthesis to continue and maintain catecholamine levels needed to ensure optimal performance.
