Pyridostigmine bromide (PB) promotes and then silences cholinergic muscle activity, and disrupts the junctional regions of muscle fibers and associated nerve terminals, in organotypic mouse spinal cord-muscle cultures continuously treated with low concentrations of the drug for up to 14 days. Spontaneous muscle activity is restored within 1 week of drug removal.
