Reviewing Molecular Biology: Goals (Chapter 2)
You should already know nearly all of what is reviewed in the second chapter of our
textbook, but you may not remember some of it. Read it over, focusing on things you

Membrane Transport Goals (Chapter 5)
This is the first topic that well focus on in class, as part of our first unit, in the
second week of class. You are probably familiar with many aspects of this topic, but
some probably either need review or will be en
Signaling Goals (Chapter 6)
These goals will be part of our first unit, beginning with RAT #1 in the second week

aspects of this topic from Cell Bio and other courses, but
Senses Goals (Chapter 10)
Brains are stuck in heads, and cant see the lion, hear the music or taste the curry.
Sensory organs gather this information from the external environment and deliver it
to the brain. How do they do this? Well, it turns out to be
Muscle Goals (Chapter 12)
The last chapter introduced us to the somatic motor system, which controls our
skeletal muscles. Now we look at those skeletal muscles, which form the basis for
our movements, including speech, as well as seeing in more detail ho
Neuron Goals (Chapter 8)
The nervous system is the major control system of the body, regulating all the bodys
other organ systems (as hormones do, but on a shorter time scale; and, unlike
hormones, the nervous system works as a single integrated system).
