Studies of the relation of endocrine glands to disturbed or retarded mentation were limited by the lack of suitable biochemical techniques and were consequently confined to behavioral observations. As in any other system in which the endocrine glands are studied, the biochemical status and competence of the target organs are of critical importance. In addition, the interrelationships among the endocrine glands themselves may alter the net metabolic effect on the receptor organs of the central nervous system, complicating any interpretation of behavioral response. During the last few years the methodology of brain chemistry has made such progress that, at least in animal experiments, one may begin to coordinate experimental results concerning endocrine function, brain metabolism, and behavior.
