What is Orexin?

Orexin, also known as hypocretin is all about energy, metabolism, and arousal.  Without it you may suffer from narcolepsy or drop fits when you laugh.  Some label it as being at the intersection of consciousness.  The best way to think of this is that your heart rate and breathing rate affect how you feel emotionally about everything else and orexin controls that.
