  • Describe a brief history of the study of anesthetic mechanisms, from lipid theories to more modern protein theories of anesthetic action
  • Summarize the Meyer-Overton correlation and hypothesis, the exceptions to the Meyer-Overton correlation, the evidence for direct interactions of anesthetics with proteins
  • Discuss the amphipathic nature of the anesthetic binding site identified within several protein complexes
  • Discuss the theoretical construct of modern models of ligand-gated ion channels and their relationship to an anesthetic site of action.
