Lecrux C, Sandoe C, Neupane S, Kropf P, Toussay X, Tong X, Lacalle-Aurioles M, Shmuel A, Hamel E (2017) Impact of altered cholinergic tones on the neurovascular coupling response to whisker stimulation. J Neurosci 37:1518-1531. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.1784-16.2016
Summary: The authors assessed the effects of varying ACh tone on whisker-evoked NVC responses in rat barrel cortex. ACh depletion was achieved via unilateral icv injection (4 mcg/2 mcl) with 192 IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) or saline. They conclude that ACh is not only a facilitator, but also a prerequisite for the full expression of sensory-evoked NVC responses.
