The effect of alteration in thyroid status on beta adrenergic receptors in the cortex of the rat was assessed. Normal animals were treated with large doses of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroidectomized animals were treated with physiological replacement doses of T4 and T3 in order to assess the possible differential effects of these hormones. In addition, a group of rats was treated with a diet of carbamazepine (an anticonvulsant also used in the treatment of manic-depressive… CONTINUE READING
