Cholinergic Systems and Cholinergic Pathology

  • Patrick L. McGeer
  • Edith G. McGeer


The history and chemistry of acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter have been discussed in other chapters in this book. In this chapter we are concerned with the neuroanatomy of cholinergic systems, including the location and nature of the receptors, and with the apparent involvement of such systems in various neurological disorders.
