Previous efforts aimed at attributing discrete behavioral functions to cortical cholinergic afferents have not resulted in a generally accepted hypothesis about the behavioral functions mediated by this system. Moreover, attempts to develop such a unifying hypothesis have been presumed to be unproductive considering the widespread innervation of the cortex by basal forebrain cholinergic neurons. In contrast to previous descriptions of the role of cortical acetylcholine (ACh) in specific… CONTINUE READING
