Abstract

Plasma corticosterone level and corticotropin (ACTH) content of the anterior pituitary (AP) were measured after various cuts around the medial basal hypothalamus (MBH). Seven to eight days after placing a complete cut around MBH there was no change in plasma corticosterone or ACTH content of AP; the slight rise in ACTH concentration was offset by the decreased weight of AP. Twenty eight days after a frontal cut there was no change in plasma corticosterone and in bioactive or immunoreactive ACTH concentration of AP.
