The response made by parsnervosa and median eminence of pigeons to osmotic stresses created by sodium chloride and potassium iodide salt solutions have been studied. Parsnervosa of pigeons showed more drainage of AF-positive secretion in response to a higher concentration of saline solution (O·25M) whereas it became refractory to a lower dose of saline (0·15M). It was further observed that a 5 μg/ml dose of iodide affected the parsnervosa partly and while a 10 μg/ml dose failed to bring about any appreciable change. The amount of secretion contained in the median eminence underwent no essential change in response to osmotic stress.

The effect of hashish plus cigarette smoke on normal rats and rats undergoing psychological trauma was studied.

The effect of total body x-irradiation was studied on rats under inanition stress. In response to irradiation an increase in the activity of cortex and medulla was noted in inanition stress administered rats rather than in the normally fed animals. Similarly, rising levels of urinary catecholamines and 5-hydroxytryptamine were observed in the starved animals after irradiation.

In the present study the amount of protection offered by the use of S-phenetyl formamidino 4(N-ethyl isothioamide) morpholine dihydrochloride to adrenal gland was investigated on albino rats against two graded doses of x-rays (1500R each). Total body x-irradiation brought about the hypertrophy and degranulation of adrenal cortical and medullary cells. The extent of hypertrophy and degranulation increased after the 2nd exposure to x-rays. Treatment with S-phenetyl formamidino 4(N-ethyl isothioamide) morpholine dihydrochloride prior to each dose of irradiation precluded the radiation changes caused in the adrenal cortex and medulla of the rats.

Feeding effect of irradiated diets was studied on the pups born to mother fed either on irradiated normal diet or irradiated low protein diet. The study indicated that pups born to mother fed on the irradiated normal diet and unirradiated low protein diet. Similarly, pups maintained on the irradiated low protein diet showed marked decrease in alkaline phosphatase and cholesterol contents in the testes rather than in the pups fed irradiated normal as well as unirradiated low protein diets. The irradiated low protein diet fed pups showed increased depletion and vacuolization of adrenocortical and medullary cells.
