  • In order for nerve impulses to reach muscles, acetylcholine is released to act as a neurotransmitter at the neuromuscular junction. This allows the nerve impulse to “fire” across the neuromuscular junction. After the acetylcholine has done it’s job, it is critical for it to be deactivated by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. Otherwise uncontrolled nerve impulses occur. By inhibiting the function of acetylcholinesterase, nerve agents cause various organ systems to be over-stimulated and go “haywire”. The systems most commonly affected include the skeletal muscles, smooth muscles, exocrine glands, and some nerves in both the central nervous system and the ganglia. Once the acetylcholinesterase has been inhibited, the effect cannot be reversed without the medication, Pralidoxime (2-Pam).

    7. 7. Tokyo subway incidenceIn the Monday morning rush hour of March 20, five cult members boarded different subway trains converging on central Tokyo. Four of them each carried two plastic bags loaded with sarin, and the fifth had three bags. At nearly the same moment, they each dropped the bags to the floor of the jam- packed train and punctured them with a specially sharpened umbrella tip. The cultists then quickly stepped off the trains as they pulled into the next station. Getaway drivers were waiting outside the station for each of them.
