Data were acquired concerning release and uptake of catecholamines in isolated adrenergic nerve storage granules and the effect of certain drugs on these processes. A tentative theory on mechanism of adrenergic nerve transmission is presented. Quantitative data are given on distribution of catecholamines in fish. Specific granulated catecholamine containing cells were discovered in Myxine heart. Evidence is given for increased noradrenaline release in rats during cold exposure and its importance for survival. Increased adrenaline release during parachute jumping was demonstrated. A hitherto unknown peripheral synaptic mechanism in vas deferens is described. Author
