Summary

The author studied the effect of B1-avitaminosis on the higher nervous activity and the secretory function of the stomach in the same experimental animals. Experiments performed on dogs with an isolated stomach pouch and fistula of the parotid gland demonstrated that B1-avitaminosis, induced repeatedly, brought about significant disturbances of the higher nervous activity, manifested by decrease of the value of positive conditioned reflexes, disinhibition of differentiations in the phasic conditions, as well as by significant disturbances of the secretory function of the gastric glands. The study of changes occuring in higher nervous activity and changes of gastric secretion, during the development of B1-avitaminosis demonstrated that they appeared, as a rule, simultaneously.
