Abstract : Conclusions: It was shown that 2 to 3 hours after irradiation of the intact thyroid, an increase of the level of bioelectric activity and quickening of heart contractions occurs. In animals with a denerved gland, these reactions were sharply weakened or completely absent. These experiments give grounds for consideration that in the activation of cerebral hemisphere and the reaction of the heart in the first hours after irradiation of the thyroid, peripheral pulsation of the nervous system plays a leading role.
