Abstract

Serotonin was measured in individual nuclei of the rat hypothalamic and preoptic regions by a specific and sensitive enzymatic-isotopic technique. This amine was unevenly distributed throughout the areas examined. Highest serotonin concentrations were found in nuclei of the basal and posterior hypothalamus. The high concentration of serotonin in the hypothalamus and median eminence suggests that this amine plays a role in the regulation of neuroendocrine mechanisms.
