Torok, "Donepezil dose-dependently inhibits acetylcholinesterase activity in various areas and in the presynaptic cholinergic and the postsynaptic cholinoceptive
enzyme-positive structures in the human and rat brain, " Neuroscience, vol.101, no.1, pp.89-100, 2000.
In contrast, neuron B110 is promiscuous in its formation of chemical connections, exhibiting neurotransmission within minutes of contact with a cholinoceptive postsynaptic target (Szabo et al., 2004).
These spherical B19 somata are highly cholinoceptive and function as ACh-sensors detecting neurotransmitter release from presynaptic neurites (Haydon and Zoran, 1989, 1991).
Unlike neuron B19's requirement for an appropriate target for the regeneration of functional synapses (Zoran et al., 1996; Zoran and Poyer, 1999), neuron B110 is able to form chemical synapses when contacted by any cholinoceptive target (Fig.
Since B110 is known to be more promiscuous in its synapse formation, a strategy of synaptogenesis reported for other Helisoma buccal neurons (Haydon and Zoran, 1989), it possesses the capacity for rapid inhibitory synapse formation with other cholinoceptive neurons.
The NPO possesses cholinoceptive neurons (61) and receives cholinergic projections from the PPT (62).
Thus, the decrease in LC neuronal activity causes an increase in the pontine cholinoceptive neuronal activity, which in turn increases the firing of the medullary inhibitory neurons producing muscle atonia.
Thus, it was postulated that the putative monoaminergic REM-OFF neurons are inhibitory to the putative cholinergic/ cholinoceptive REM-ON neurons and the latter are inhibitory to the former.
