The Noradrenaline system consists of noradrenergic neurons in the brain which form a neurotransmitter system, that, when activated, exerts effects on large areas of the brain. The effects are alertness and arousal, and influences on the reward system.
This structure explains some of the clinical uses of norepinephrine, since a modification of the system affects large areas of the brain.
