About this book

How are sights and sounds and smells converted into electrical signals in a form that can be interpreted by the nervous system? Beginning with fundamental properties of ion channels and G-protein coupled signal cascades, Sensory Transduction provides a comprehensive survey of this new knowledge that, taken as a whole, represents one of the greatest achievements of modern biology and neuroscience: the unravelling of the mechanism of sensation.


The Senses - Mechanisms of Sensation - Channels and Electrical Signals - Metabotropic Signal Transduction - Mechanoreceptors and Touch - Hair Cells and the Detection of movement and Sound - Chemoreception and the Sense of Smell - Taste - Photoreception - Extra Sensory Receptors
