Abstract

The effect of ether stress on the release of immunoreactive ACTH was studied in rats with an antero-lateral cut around the medial basal hypothalamus. Ether failed to raise the plasma ACTH level of rats in which an antero-lateral hypothalamic cut and aderenalectomy had been performed 7 to 8 days previously. Plasma ACTH was also unchanged in rats exposed to ether 2 hr after an antero-lateral cut. These data suggest that intact neural pathways entering the medial basal hypothalamus from the antero-lateral direction are necessary for the ACTH releasing action of ether stress.
