Resumen

Los ganglios cerebrales del pulpo (Octopus vulgaris) sintetizan la dopamina y la noradrenalina radioctivas luego de la administración in vivo o la incubación in vitro con sus precursores marcados. La dopamina es luego metabolizada a ácido dihidroxifenilacético mientras que el correspondiente derivado de la noradrenalina no fué encontrado.
