Every 3 years early Spring witnesses the convening of a small team of neuroscientists from many components of the area. they're dedicated to the research of acetylcholine, the oldest of the recognized neurotransmitters. to evaluate the extent of data, 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 woodland, 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 gentle 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 booklet. The papers describe the newest improvement of investiga­ tions on acetylcholine. They open with an in depth insurance of the developmental and phylogenetic points of the cholinergic neurons. The rules of acetylcholine synthesis, liberate, put up­ synaptic, electric and trophic results within the peripheral chol­ inergic synapses together with ganglia, neuromuscular junction, myen­ theric plexus and middle is then coated. certain emphasis is given to the cholinergic mechanisms within the eye.
