"I like to illustrate it this way: Neurotransmiters are like mental mail carriers. Monoamine oxidase is like a big scary watch-dog that keeps eating the mail carriers and thus keeping him from delivering your mail! MAOI's are like a nice big juicy bone that we give to the dog to keep him busy and distracted so that the mail carrier can do his work"
