The modulatory inputs of the cholinergic neurons of the nucleus basalis have been investigated in midpontine transected and freely moving rats by measuring acetylcholine release from the cerebral cortex using the cortical cup technique. Acetylcholine release was found to be the same in both groups of rats indicating similar levels of activity of the cholinergic neurons ascending to the cortex. The electrical stimulation of the nucleus basalis was always followed by an increase in acetylcholine… CONTINUE READING
