Using gamma/exposure and brightness sliders in PS

I've noticed that when I send my  finshed RAW conversions from LR to Photoshop and start fintuning with Photoshops own Exposure/Gamma and Brightness sliders it is easier and quicker to get that final pop and umph in the midtones and blacks. It's like the image responds "better" or "faster" when in non-linear editing and a gamma-curve (?) has been applied.

The sliders are crude and one most be careful. But for that final touch they seem to be really handy. I wasn't expecting that...

BTW - is there really any technical difference between a gamma/midtone correction using levels vs the Exposure slider?
