Fluorimetric method was applied to determination of the dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline content in the tissues of the brain of male rats. Catecholamine distribution in the hypothalamus was uneven. Hyprthyroid state decreased the concentration of dopamine in the anterior and the middle hypothalamus, and also in the preoptic area; removal of the throid gland produced no significant changes in the dopamine, noradrenaline or adrenaline concentration.
