On p. 84 of the text, in the Thinking Clearly section, the conduction action potentials and activation of neurotransmitters is related to a row of mousetraps on a wobbly shelf. Think of your own original analogy you can use to describe the conduction of action potentials and activation of neurotransmitters and post as your response.

I need help understanding better. I'm totally lost

1. Reread the part about the row of mousetraps on a wobbly shelf.

This site also explains neurotransmitters.

Think of something in everyday life that acts like the mousetraps.
