Instead, they can interact with intracellular receptors that are themselves transcription activators. Steroid hormones too hydrophobic to dissolve readily in the blood travel on speciļ¬c carrier proteins from their point of release to their target tissues. In ...

You might want to read about event related potentials (recorded by EEG) or event related fields (recorder by MEG). The idea is simple: 1) Pick some stimulus, e.g. a person touching the hand of a subject. Pick another stimulus, e.g. the subject seeing a person touching the hand of another subject. Record EEG/MEG. 2) Repeat each condition for at least few ...
