Good news from the Baldscientist’s research group

Dear Baldscientist’s friends:

The way it works is that they solicit cover submissions from the authors of the accepted papers from that particular issue. We were selected!

  1. Congratulations to you and your group! When I looked upon the two molecules, I tried to reason how nicotine differs from cocaine in the so-called mode of action?

It has been some time since I have thought about modes of action–(and that was with herbicides–pardon the expression?)
