Moreover, the presence of cholinergic neurotransmission in both motor and sensory systems of Bivalvia is well known (Gerschenfeld 1973 Wachtler 1988) and, particularly in the gills, the acetylcholine plays a significant role as both positive and negative modulator on the frontal cilia (Biilbring et al.
7 The beneficial effects of salbutamol may be due to the inhibition of cholinergic neurotransmission through heterogenous AY2 receptors and subsequently decreased release of acetylcholine leads to decreased airway reactivity.
In the last decade, different transgenic mice were produced and used to further evaluate the contribution of cholinergic neurotransmission in sleep generation, maintenance and control.
To our knowledge, this is the first study to report direct interference by dioxin with the cholinergic neurotransmission system.
The effects on cognitive functioning are likely related to an acute reduction in central cholinergic neurotransmission (Kamboj & Curran, 2006b).
Cholinergic neurotransmission is essential for perirhinal cortical plasticity and recognition memory.
Theoretically, no; the aging brain is, overall, deficient in cholinergic neurotransmission and muscarinic mechanisms are required for a number of cognitive processes, including short-term memory.
Cholinergic neurotransmission is known for its role in cognitive functioning in the mammalian brain.
Some chapter topics include the interaction of prion protein with triazine-based biomimetic affinity ligands, allergic and allergic-like reactions to glococorticoids, and advances in drug discovery to assess cholinergic neurotransmission.
