    Snyder et al propose that caffeine, which is structurally similar to adenosine, is able to bind to both types of receptors, which prevents adenosine from attaching there and allows the neurons to fire more readily than they otherwise would.  According to Snyder et al, caffeine differs from adenosine in that caffeine

    • A.

      Stimulates behavior in the mouse and in humans, whereas adenosine stimulates behavior in humans only

    • B.

      Has mixed effects in the brain, whereas adenosine has only a stimulatory effect

    • C.

       permits release of neurotransmitters when it is bound to adenosine receptors, whereas adenosine inhibits such release

    • D.

       increases cyclic AMP concentrations in target neurons, whereas adenosine decreases such concentrations

    Correct Answer
    C.  permits release of neurotransmitters when it is bound to adenosine receptors, whereas adenosine inhibits such release
    Explanation
    Caffeine, according to Snyder et al, permits the release of neurotransmitters when it binds to adenosine receptors, while adenosine inhibits the release of neurotransmitters. This means that caffeine allows the neurons to fire more readily by preventing adenosine from attaching to the receptors and blocking neurotransmitter release. Adenosine, on the other hand, has the opposite effect and inhibits neurotransmitter release.
