The cholinergic system has been recognized as playing an important role not only in several forms of dementia besides Alzheimer's Disease, but also in other CNS degenerative and psychiatric disorders. Following on from the success of two previous publications in the cholinergic field - Cholinesterases and Their Inhibitors and Butyrylcholinesterase: Its Function and Inhibitors - Doctor Ezio Giacobini and Professor Giancarlo Pepeu have prepared this comprehensive and timely volume, which will be useful to both clinical and pre-clinical specialists including neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neuropharmacologists and neurophysiologists, molecular neurobiologists and neurobiologists in general.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
