1. You will learn that neurons are capable of transmitting electrical signals between each other. 2. You will learn about a historical experiment that demonstrated the importance of chemical messengers (called neurotransmitters) in neuronal communication Neurotransmitters and Receptor Module neurotransmitters) in neuronal communication. 3. You will learn that chemical communication between neurons takes place at chemical synapses. 4. You will learn the anatomy of the chemical synapse using Duckman. 5. You will learn the sequence of events leading to neurotransmitter release during chemical synaptic transmission 6. You will learn about various types of neurotransmitter and some distinguishing characteristics of each type. 7. You will learn about the two classes of receptor that bind neurotransmitter leading to a voltage change called a postsynaptic potential or PSP. 8. You will use some new techniques (i.e. inductive reasoning and voltage clamping) to determine whether a chemical synapse is excitatory or inhibitory. 9. While performing the voltage clamp technique, you will learn the definition of a reversal potential.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
