Abstract : The ninhydrin positive substances present in the cerebrum, cerebellum, midbrain and pons medulla of the rat were determined with an amino acid analyser which employs a single cation exchange column. Only ten of the forty-two substances measured were uniformly distributed in the four areas of the brain. The presence of an unknown fraction, eluted from the column after arginine and concentrated in the midbrain, is reported. (Author)
