Glutamic acid decarboxylase activity was assayed in rat substantia nigra, corpus striatum, medial basal hypothalamus and cerebellum under conditions of hyperprolactemia induced by transplantation of adenopituitary under the kidney capsule. The results indicate that hyperprolactinemia induces a slight increase in the glutamic acid decarboxylase activity of substantia nigra and medial basal hypothalamus and a more evident increase at striatal level. No change was observed in the cerebellum.
