Abstract

Bungarotoxin was shown to inhibit the synaptic transmission in the rat superior cervical ganglion. As the inhibition proved to be reversible, just as in avian autonomic ganglia, it is assumed that the ganglionic acetylcholine receptors reacting with bungarotoxin are different from those of skeletal muscle or electric organ.
