... in response to What is Dopamine?
  1. James Nunn James Nunn Australia says:

    To answer your question yes, dopamine is a hormone and it is released from the hypothalamus. As well as being a hormone it also acts as a neurotransmitter at the synapse transferring information between neurons. Dopamine is recognised more as a hormone (The happy hormone) because there are many other neurotransmitters that are in a synapse and also because of its main role of being a key part of happy emotions.
