These results clearly indicate a diencephalic site of action of scopolamine. DeMaarlO confirmed this finding with both scopolamine and atropine, further showing by removing most of the prosencephalon that the ventro-caudal portion of the diencephalon (roughly the area of the subthalamus) was the site for this inhibitory action. Further evidence that there are cholinergic receptors in this general area was afforded by Desmedt and Schlagll who showed that eserine greatly increased the discharge of single midbrain neurons in cats with transections through the posterior aspects of the diencephalon.
