Abstract

The injection of epinephrine into the third ventricle of the rat brain causes a biphasic elevation and depression in the integrated multiple-unit electrical activity of the median eminence. Activity in the arcuate nucleus decreases after the injection of the catecholamines. These changes in the integrated multiple-unit electrical activity may be related to the secretion of hormones by the anterior pituitary gland.
