Every 3 years early Spring witnesses the convening of a small team of neuroscientists from many components of the realm. they're dedicated to the research of acetylcholine, the oldest of the identified neurotransmitters. to evaluate the extent of information, to take inventory of the nonetheless unsolved difficulties, to judge the sensible which means in their findings, the cholinologists first met in 1969 within the eerie surroundings of a snow-covered Swedish wooded area, the second one within the Swiss Alps, the 3rd dealing with the surf and foam of the Paci­ fic waves. eventually in March 1980 Florence, her timber burgeoning within the light rain of March, faced them with the temptation of her monuments and museums. however the cholinologists bravely dismis­ sed the enticements and went on with the displays and discus­ sions of the numerous papers which shape the current ebook. The papers describe the newest improvement of investiga­ tions on acetylcholine. They open with an intensive assurance of the developmental and phylogenetic facets of the cholinergic neurons. The rules of acetylcholine synthesis, unlock, submit­ synaptic, electric and trophic results within the peripheral chol­ inergic synapses together with ganglia, neuromuscular junction, myen­ theric plexus and center is then lined. distinctive emphasis is given to the cholinergic mechanisms within the eye.

The process of maturation of such a mechanism is not well understood and is probably more difficult to study in CNS preparations than in the peripheral nervous system (15). By relating morphological to biochemical findings, we have demonstrated that a high affinity Ch uptake mechanism is present in the primitive nerve fibers starting from the earliest stages of innervation. The DEVELOPING CHOLINERGIC SYNAPSES 15 presence of Na+ dependent high affinity uptake for the precursor Ch is detected as early as at 5 days incubation.
