Welcome to the XVIth International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms (ISCM-XVI), scheduled for December 8th-13th, 2019. The symposium will be held in the Lopatie Conference Center on the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, Israel.

The first International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms (ISCM) was organized by the late Edith Heilbronn. It took place in Skokloster, Sweden, in 1970. The ISCMs have been held triennially since then, the most recent being ISCM-XV, in Marseille, in October, 2016. The principal objective of these conferences is to survey progress in the understanding of the molecular, cellular, pharmacological, toxicological, behavioral and clinical aspects of the cholinergic system, and to bring fundamental and applied scientists together so as to survey and discuss the most recent developments in cholinergic research. It has also been a tradition to publish the proceedings, so as to provide a comprehensive picture of the cholinergic field at the time of the symposium.
