Evidence that the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nBM)-cortical and septohippocampal cholinergic pathways, deriving from the magnocellular forebraincholinergic complex, are implicated in attention and/or memorization processes has been provided by pharmacological, clinical, and lesion studies (Collerton 1986; Hagan and Morris 1988; Sarter and Bruno 1997a). Based on an outline of these hypotheses, studies comparing changes in the activity of these cholinergic pathways induced by learning and… CONTINUE READING
