Axonal features means that there is evidence to suggest damage to the axon as opposed to the myelin sheath. Essentially axonal damage leads to a reduction of amplitude with preservation of nerve conduction velocity whereas demyelination results in a reduction of conduction velocity. https://www.ninds.nih.gov/Disorders/Patient-Caregiver-Education/Fact-...

The heart is not a center of intellect, it's a multi-chambered pump made primarily out of muscle. There are however "heart signals", at least in a sense.

The ingredients one by one Sorbitol: An alcohol sugar, and a sugar substitute.

Endorphins are neuropeptides that can bind to opioid receptors, thus exerting an analgesic effect in the brain. You mention a counterpart, which is a badly defined concept in this context. There are other substances that can bind to these opioid receptors (opiods, for one :-)) and substances that can block opioid receptors without triggering them, like ...
