Abstract

Change in the blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels during self-stimulation and avoidance reactions were studied in rabbits of both sexes. Self-stimulation was accompanied by a significant fall in the blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. During the avoidance reaction the character of changes in the cholesterol level varied. In avoidance reactions of the “aggression” type the blood cholesterol was raised, whereas in reactions of the “fear” type it was lowered. The maximal deviation of the blood cholesterol from its initial level in all types of reactions was observed 15–30 min after stimulation.
