    S Darvesh
    Department of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
    J Comp Neurol 393:374-90. 1998
    ..The distinct distribution of BuChE suggests that it may have specific functions including coregulation of cholinergic and noncholinergic neurotransmission in human amygdala and hippocampal formation...

    S Darvesh
    Department of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
    Int Psychogeriatr 13:461-4. 2001
    ..We suggest that, because neurons expressing BuChE may be involved in cognition, there is merit to further evaluation of selective BuChE inhibitors in treating cognitive dysfunction...
