The effects of two short chain ACTH analogues, tetracosactide 1-24, eptadecapeptide 1-17, on EEG, behaviour and temperature of the rabbit are studied. The behaviour and temperature effects of two compounds are quite similar. The EEG synchronizing action is more evident when tetracosactide 1-24 is administered. This fact suggests that the aminoacids 18-24 might be important in affecting electric cerebral activity.
