comment What kinds of arousal can a human brain experience?
Thanks! The way I can clarify the question is - exposure to a new arousing stimuli (ex: new sexy female) stimulates release of dopamine in response to the stimuli. I'm interested if there are other neuromodulators that are elevated or lowered in response to stimuli.

comment Physiological indicators of happiness and well being
Check out Wikipedia Article on serotonin. There are multiple serotonin receptors in the human brain, and mutations of those receptors are related to depression and suicide. As such, serotonin levels aren't really a metric of happiness. I would look at long term behavior as an indicator of happiness or depression

From personal observation: house sparrows "stake a claim" at a bird feeder, and both males and females chase away competitors
