Conclusions1.Five to ten minutes after the application of a 1–2% solution of acetylcholine to the visual cortex of an awake rabbit a trend toward an increase in the spatial synchronization of potentials was observed in the leads from the visual and sensorimotor cortical regions.2.The principal effect of the application of a 1–2% solution of amizil, a blocker of M-cholinoreceptors, to the visual cortex of an awake rabbit was the steady decrease in the spatial synchronization of potentials…

Influence of acetylcholine on shifts in spatial synchronization of cortical potentials of the rabbit, elicited by reversible interruption of the associations of the mammillary bodies
The hypothesis is advanced of the existence of a nonspecific cholinergic synchronizing system which is active when the mammillothalamocortical connections are preserved.


The spontaneous and evoked release of acetylcholine from the cerebral cortex
It has been found that excitation of the cortex, either through sensory nerves or by direct electrical stimulation, increases the ACh output and the most important step in the identification of cholinergic transmission has been the demonstration of the release of ACh during stimulation of the appropriate nerve.
Neocortical cholinergic innervation: A description of extrinsic and intrinsic components in the rat
The results indicate that approximately 70% of the cholinergic innervation in the frontoparietal cortex is derived from acetylcholinesterase positive neurons in the peripallidal nucleus basalis, whereas the remainder appears to be localized in cortical intrinsic neurons.
Pharmacological properties of acetylcholine‐sensitive cells in the cerebral cortex
The pharmacological properties of the ACh receptors responsible for the activation of cholinoceptive neurones in the cortex are described and it will be shown that these receptors are of a clearly nicotinic in character.
Development of muscarinic cholinergic receptor binding in the visual system of monocularly deprived and dark reared rats
In adult (6 month old) MD and DR rats the differences in3H-QNB binding as compared to age-matched controls had disappeared completely in all visual brain areas studied.
Cholinergic innervation of cortex by the basal forebrain: Cytochemistry and cortical connections of the septal area, diagonal band nuclei, nucleus basalis (Substantia innominata), and hypothalamus in the rhesus monkey
The organization of projections from the cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain to neocortex and associated structures was investigated in the rhesus monkey with the help of horseradish
