Do you mean to ask what the bonds are or what molecule it is? Because it's dopamine.

Covalent one.

Not that I know which bond you are interested in, but all bonds in the molecule of this particular compound are covalent, so I bet it is a correct answer.

Actually it's far more complicated than that, some studies suggest that without dopamine it is possible for a creature to experience pleasure but will not have any drive to seek pleasure. Thus dopamine could be important in reward anticipation rather than reward itself.

Dopamine is involved in many different processes and low dopamine is associated with depression, ADHD and Parkinson's to name a few.

Parkinson's is caused by the death of dopamine excreting cells, the exact cause of the die off is unknown but it isn't because sufferers didn't have enough fun.
