Abstract : The ninhydrin positive substances have been determined in four different areas of the brain of the hypoglycaemic rat. The hemispheres were primarily affected with the cerebellum, midbrain and pons-medulla showing fewer and smaller changes. The involvement of ammonia, peptides and several minor constituents is discussed. (Author)
