Die Rolle von Noradrenalin bei der Temperaturwirkung der Narkose The Role of Noradrenaline for the Temperature Effect of Anaesthesia

  • W. Feldberg


Vor einigen Jahren haben Prof. Myers und ich die Theorie aufgestellt, daß eine Funktion der im Hypothalamus vorkommenden Monoamine darin bestehe, Änderungen der Körpertemperatur herbeizuführen (Feldberg u. Myers, 1963, 1964a). Wenn diese Theorie richtig ist, ergibt sich die Frage: welche Temperaturänderungen beruhen auf dem Freiwerden dieser Monoamine?
