    Hello everyone,

    I am a 3rd year undergrad student currently doing my dissertation. I have had a lot of trouble finding a suitable research question which is purposeful while also a gap in the research.

    My current idea is along the lines of looking into:

    The effect on mood after low intensity exercise and guided imagery of exercise among sedentary individuals.

    However I have been advised to try and look into a specific mechanism which might be effected between the 2 conditions- e.g. endorophins

    Does anyone have any help or any ideas on details to help fine-tune my question and to help me offer a rationale for my study?

    Thanks in advance

    Think of the determinants of mood, particularly amine levels in the brain (including 5-HT), as well as the opioid receptors and the relative contribution to mood of the mu, kappa and delta receptors, as well as the effect of naturally occurring mood enhancers such as the endorphins and encephalins, which also act on opiod receptors.
