    Bonjour tout le monde.

    comment traduiriez-vous "j'agite mes neurones".
    C'est un petit personnage d'animation qui prononce ces paroles et qui s'empresse ensuite de secouer sa tête dans tous les sens !

    Merci pour votre aide !

    Is this a normal expression in French?

    I'm trying to translate La Malédiction by Gérald De Palmas and there's a line that says "Tout ça agite mes neurones". I thought this might mean "All of that get's on my nerves" but would nerfs or énerver not be used normally?

    The verse is like this:
    "Tokyo manque d'oxygène
    Mexico c'est plus à la peine
    Destruction de la couche d'ozone
    Tout ça agite mes neurones"

    Thanks
