29 Feb anticholinesterase

Cholinesterase inhibitor that prolongs decay of action potential changes or spikes. If action potential decays more slowly, it will not require as strong an impulse to bring the potential of a neuron beyond the firing threshold. In other words, anticholinesterase makes excited neurons more excitable.
