Abstract : The mesencephalic reticular formation, nonspecific thalamic nuclei, nucleus caudatus and amygdala were found to have m- and n-cholinoreceptors concentrated therein, the distribution of the latter is the first of the above-named structures being dissimilar. The cerebral cortex is largely m-cholinergic. The sensitivity of the m-cholinoreactive systems in the cortex, nucleus caudatus and amygdala varies. (Author)
