The adrenergic innervation of the hypothalamus was studied by measuring hypothalamic adrenaline levels following surgical transection of the lower brain stem or electrolytic lesion of the medullary adrenaline-containing cell groups. The adrenaline levels in some hypothalamic nuclei and in the median eminence showed a slight decrease after partial transection of the medulla oblongata, whilst there was a pronounced decrease (by 59–78%) 7–10 days following total hemisection or unilateral lesion of the C1-catecholaminergic cell group in the medulla oblongata
