  • Maria Wollemann
  • Anna Borsodi


The concept of α- and ß-adrenergic receptors was introduced by Ahlquist1 in 1948, but the fact that sympathetic excitatory actions of epinephrine are abolished by ergot alkaloids whereas inhibitory actions of epineprine are not was discovered by Dale2 in 1906.
