Abstract

Extirpation of the pituitary pars distalis of R. cyanophlictis caused an increase in cholesterol level (shock effect) in the fore-​, mid-​, and hindbrain over the next 5 days compared to that in sham-​operated controls. Recovery occurred subsequently. The increase in cholesterol level was greatest in the forebrain 15 min after ablation and was greatest in the hindbrain 1 day after ablation. The hormonal imbalance caused by removal of the pars distalis was probably responsible for the changes in brain cholesterol metab.
