Why Zombies desire Brains/Entrails.
In a word: Serotonin.
Serotonin is mostly concentrated in the gut and is also found in large quantities in the brain. Serotonin is mostly widely known to affect mood. If you’ve recently become undead, that’s a pretty big change - mostly for the negative; you could certainly use a pick me up. Since a Zombie’s body is dead, the Enterochromaffin cells no longer function and they no longer produce Serotonin A lot of the fun, alive things, are no longer an option, so I’m inclined to believe at the basic functional level of a Zombie, pleasure becomes a driving force. The presence of Serotonin while in living humans suppresses appetite, might possibly have the opposite effect on Zombies, being dead and all: hence the feeding frenzy. Perhaps Zombies are even vying for dominant roles by ingesting large quantities of serotonin
So the next time you see a tired, shuffling Zombie who suddenly becomes much more animated in the presence of serotonin producing creatures - remember, they’re just looking for a little happiness in their undead state.– May 7th, 2013
Eric: Well, you can't beat entropy.
Vona: What? You can't be denture free?
Eric: No, you can't be denture free. It's inevitable. It happens to all of us eventually; when you least expect it: *BAM* Dentures.– April 16th, 2013
Vona: I thought basketball ended with March Madness?
Eric: Oh no, I don't think it ever ends.
Eric: "The guy yelling at you in the suit is your coach."
Vona: "Everyone else is just a fan."– April 6th, 2013
