Acetylcholine R's: There are 2 types of receptors activated by the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ach).: nicotinic and muscarinic receptors. Nicotinic receptors are also activated by nicotine, and are the receptors on skeletal muscle cells which receive ach signals from motor nerves. Muscarinic receptors are not activated by nicotine, and they are found in autonomic ganglia and the brain.
