Anticholinergics are agents used to treat spasticity and bladder problems. They work by blocking the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Anticholinergics dampen nerve activity in a part of the nervous system called the parasympathetic nervous system.
Cholinergic describes the nerve endings that release the acetylcholine.
The place of contact between nerves and muscles is called at the neuromuscular junction. Here, acetylcholine is released by motor neurons of the parasympathetic nervous system.
