The Brain Cholinergic System
by Ezio Giacobini

The Brain Cholinergic System is a comprehensive and timely volume, covering the cholinergic system as it plays an important role not only in several forms of dementia besides Alzheimer's Disease, but also in other CNS degenerative and psychiatric disorders.
