Normal neurons interconnect producing thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. These neurons also coordinate senses such as sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. During an anxiety attack, normal neurons turn into abnormal neurons. Abnormal neurons are unable to transmit neurotransmitters from one neuron to another.
