1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi all, I have to write a couple of essays for a neuroscience course, but I was hoping I could get some clarification regarding the titles just to be sure that my answer is relevant: (1) Describe synaptic transmission with reference to the electrochemical conduction of the action potential and signal transduction at the synapse. (2) Explain how neurons convey and integrate information. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Firstly, is there any significant difference between these two? For (1) I was planning on describing the action potential, then briefly discussing the release of neurotransmitters and how they bind to the postsynaptic neuron to produce an effect. For (2) I expect to write roughly the same thing, but including a description of the way neurons sum all of their inputs to calculate the final result.
