Abstract:

The International Symposia on Cholinergic Mechanisms ISCM were established in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1970 and have been held every three years to discuss progress in the understanding of molecular, pharmacological, behavioral and clinical aspects of cholinergic mechanisms. The volumes published after each symposium have been landmarks in this field the proceedings of the last two meetings were special issues of Progress in Brain Research. Following Sweden, Switzerland, USA, Italy, Great Britain, Canada and Germany, France hosts the Tenth ISCM in September 1998, in Arcachon. The marine laboratory in Arcachon has played an important role in cholinergic research since David Nachmansohn discovered there, in 1938, that the electric organs of Torpedo are a rich source of cholinergic synapses. The meeting addresses cholinergic mechanisms in central and peripheral nervous systems, sensory organs and muscles.
