Abstract

The effects of intraventricular administration of cholecystokinin antiserum on the dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (NE) and serotonin (5-HT) contents of the hypothalamus, mesencephalon, amygdala, septum, striatum and cerebral cortex were tested 24 hr following injection in rats. Cholecystokinin antiserum decreased the DA and NE contents of the hypothalamus, mesencephalon, amygdala and septum, while it increased the DA and decreased the NE content of the striatum. In the cerebral cortex the NE content was decreased. The 5-HT contents decreased in the mesencephalon, amygdala and septum, and increased in the striatum.
