Dopamine is one of the key neurotransmitters which produces pleasure when the ‘reward pathway’ in the brain is activated. Nicotine attaches to neurons in a region of the brain called the ventral tegmental area, and these neurons then trigger the release of dopamine in another nearby brain region known as the nucleus accumbens; this release of dopamine produces pleasure.
