    All the living beings are neurobiologically driven beings. Creative writers and artists are no exception to it. We as literary critics, think that creative writers and artists are also living beings and they are mostly driven by neuro-chemical reactions in the brain. In the world of neurology, each body and the parts of the body are the cause of all the information received by the neurons and through certain processes, they are revealed in the form of Human behavior. Creativity is one of the human behaviors which is mostly governed by neuro psychological impacts of the external world. The paper argues for this kind of neuro chemical reactions, processes, and knowledge receptions as subject matters of romantic poets. The romantic poets were deeply influenced by the French Revolution, and Tambora eruption effects. The paper presents how these effects were received by the poets neurologically and being under some certain neurotransmitters and neuromodulators like norepinephrine (NE) and Epinephrine, Histamine, and Serotonin, and how they could use a specific kind of diction which is conceptualized as ―Climatoglossia‖.Climatoglossia is defined for interpreting used images and symbols concerning severe shifts in the climate of Europe and Britain as reflected in the select poems of Byron, Shelley, Campbell, and Keats.
