Central, I'm pretty sure.

Anticholinergic agents (like atropine or scopolamine) on the other hand work as peripheral muscle relaxants, and can serve as an antidote to poisoning from acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (certain nerve gases and pesticides, and medications eg. galanthamine and donepezil) that induce muscle cramping.

I found your post about hypercholinergia interesting. I've been wondering if I suffer from it too. I recall reading about a "hypercholinergic mouse model of depression", but I must be mistaken, because I can find it now. I think this warrants a thread of its own.
