Video Description:

Muscarine is the poison of the fly agaric, a fungus. It's the Antidote to Atropine. Muscarine is very similar to Nicotine in its molecular spatial structure, and also to Acetylcholine.

It is the poison of the tobacco plant. In the video, nicotine takes the place of acetylcholine, by affecting its receptors.
