Abstract

Intracerebral cholinergic fibers originating in the nucleus basalis of Meynert (NBM) and septal complex projecting to the cortex and hippocampus have been reported to degenerate in Alzheimer’s disease as well as in aged people1,2. However, physiological function of these cholinergic fibers have remained obscure.
