So activation of cholinergic
muscarinic receptor causes bronchoconstriction [5-11].
Their mechanism of action for cholinergic
enhancement is suboptimal, and they do not repair neurons, protect against death, or truly restore lost neuronal function.
manipulations may affect specific types of memory and may depend on different brain structures (29).
The results of the present study provide a new possibility that endogenous neurotoxins (R)-Sal and (R)NMSal not only affect the dopaminergic system by inhibiting the related enzymes in the synthesis or metabolism of DA, but also impair the cholinergic
system by inactivating AChE.
At high doses, inhibition of cholinesterase leads to cholinergic
hyperstimulation and its associated symptoms (Mileson et al.
Since diminished cholinergic
transmission and increase cholesterol levels appear to be responsible for development of amyloid plaques and dementia in Alzheimer patients, this may prove to be a useful medicine in humans.
University of California (Oakland, CA) has patented a specific clinical protocol for use toward therapy of defective, diseased and damaged cholinergic
neurons in the mammalian brain, of particular usefulness for treatment of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease.
Botulinum toxin, which causes temporary chemical denervation of the cholinergic
nerve fibers, has also been used successfully to manage sialoceles.
There is evidence from our studies and from other, smaller studies that behavioral symptoms can improve with cholinergic
treatment," said Dr.
