It’s supposed to raise dopamine levels in patients brain but if I remember correctly both from the movie and the book, it has to be taken in rather big dosages to have an effect since the brain is build in a way that makes it harder for chemicals from the outside to get to it. It’s basically a miracle with how well it restores movement to its patients but it also has some very heavy side effects.
