Abstract

Tryptophan injected intracerebrally in rats increases the level of brain serotonin. This increase occurs also in animals pretreated with reserpine or with a monoamineoxidase inhibitor. Other studies show that tryptophan, tryptamine or 6-hydroxytryptamine are not interfering in the determination of brain serotonin.
