Abstract

1. In cats anaesthetized with pentobarbitone sodium, atropinized by i.v. atropine methyl nitrate and artificially ventilated, experiments were carried out (a) to localize the site where glycine acts on the ventral surface of the medulla when, on topical application through paired Perspex rings caudal to the trapezoid bodies, it produces a fall in arterial blood pressure, (b) to compare the effects of uni- and bilateral application, and (c) to study the blood pressure effects produced by electrolytic lesions of the glycine-sensitive areas.
