Summary

The sorption properties of the brain were determined in newborn ratlings, in adult intact and adrenalectomized rats after administration of the same dose of neutral red (per gm of body weight). The data obtained with the aid of photocolorimetry show that the sorption faculty of the newborns is three times lower than that in adult rats, whele adrenalectomy does not change the sorption properties of the brain in adult rats. This investigation confirms the conclusions of the previous author's works according to which increased Medinal content in the brain of the newborn ratlings is a result of increased permeability of the hematoencephalic barrier.
