Abstract : Some neurophysiological aspects of the regulation of the homeostasis by the central nervous system have been studied and will be described. Attempts have also been made to analyze how such adjustments and how inefficient regulation due to inertial or pathological conditions can influence cerebral activities. Special emphasis has been laid on technical problems. The employment of the neuronally isolated cortex as an index of how the cortical tissue reacts to blood-borne influences is described. Brain-stem activities that are especially involved in autonomic functions and in particular in the arousal phenomenon are discussed. (Author)
