Nervous system signals and their implications
Welcome to the on-line forum associated with the Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Its a way to keep conversations going between course meetings, and to do so in a way that makes our conversations available to other who may in turn have interesting thoughts to contribute to them. You're welcome to post here any thoughts that have arisen during the course this week (and to respond to thoughts others have posted).
Some issues worth exploring this week are the implications of thinking of the nervous system, and behavior, in terms of action potentials, receptor and generator potentials, and synaptic potentials. What does this help to make better sense of? What does it seem difficult to account for this way? What new questions does it open up?
