Villa AEP, Tetko IV, Dutoit P, Vantini G (2000) Non-linear cortico-cortical interactions modulated by cholinergic afferences from the rat basal forebrain. BioSystems 58:219-228. doi: 10.1016/s0303-2647(00)00126-x
Summary: Elimination of the cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain (BF) is an excellent model for some aspects of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). 192-Saporin (Cat. #IT-01) is a very effective tool for elimination of cholinergic neurons in the BF. Villa et al. investigate whether field potential changes in the brains of lesioned animals mimic changes observed in the brains of human AD patients. The data presented indicate depletion of cholinergic neurons from the BF of both rats and humans produces similar changes in field potential.
