The influence of the functional state of the cerebral cortex on the secretory cycle of the thyroid gland

  • M. G. Amiragova


The function of the thyroid gland in dogs was evaluated with the aid of radioactive iodine. The functional condition of the brain conex was changed by conditioned reflexes. Data were obtained which demonstrate that the function of the thyroid gland is regulated by the brain cortex and depends on its functional condition. The brain cortex influences the process of hormone production and of excretion of metabolic products of the glands into the blood. Thus it coordinates the function of the thyroid gland with the requirements of the whole organism.
