Please come to class on April 18th having read chapter 12 in Basic Neurochemistry through the section on the four groups of receptors (up to page 249 in the printed book); you can skip the sections on methods for studying exocytosis and, the neuromuscular junction and quantal analysis.

Once you’ve completed this reading, take another look at figure 6-10 in The Machinery of Life. How does it depict some of the concepts you’ve read about?
