Stress and peripheral ACH

 I am new of the list and I am working as a clinical specialist 
neurologist and a specialist medical psychologist.
 Since about 20 years one of my interest is stress and  related 
neurochemical modifications.
 From  a  clinical point of view,  I supposed  that  the  brain 
uptake  of  choline was reduced in stress conditions,  with  an 
increased synthesis of peripheral Ach. 
 Now  I found references about an efflux of choline from  brain 
throughout the blood-brain barrier in stress conditions.

 My questions:
 Is  there  somebody  who  heard or  read  something  about  an 
increased synthesis of peripheral Ach during stress conditions?
 Who is the leading researcher on peripheral Ach?
 Thanks in advance for any valuable help.
