Abstract The effect of angiotensin and atropine was studied on cortical acetylcholine output in the cat ‘encephale isole’ preparation. Acetylcholine was estimated by bioassay. Local administration of either of these 2 drugs at a concentration of 10 −9 M caused an increase of acetylcholine output from the parietal cortex, an effect that persisted after washing. At 10 −8 M , angiotensin caused a 240% increase of acetylcholine output, while atropine, at the same molar concentration, did not change… CONTINUE READING
