The contributions to this quantity in actual fact point out the momentum, caliber, liveliness and variety of the examine attempt being di­ rected towards deepening our knowing of tqe alcohol withdrawal syndrome. This zone of analysis has won expanding curiosity and a spotlight to the purpose the place it appeared moderate to dedicate a spe­ cial part to it on the thirtieth overseas Congress for Alcoholism and Drug Dependence in Amsterdam in September, 1972. Our aim was once to percentage our most modern findings and stimulate others to hitch within the attempt. With few exceptions, the papers during this booklet current new info. It were was hoping that the amount would seem through the top of 1972. despite the fact that, the passion of the various members to increase their investigations made this aim date most unlikely. a number of of the papers weren't provided within the part yet have been provided in other places within the Congress. even if, due to their specific relevance to the subject they've been integrated with the beneficiant consent of the authors.

Attachment of "biogenic·· aldehydes onto brain cell components may have important biological implications in phenomena, such as sleep (30), and a functional role for such aldehydes in inducing sleep-like states has been presented (31,32). The interaction of serotonin itself with CNS receptors has also been postulated to result in sedation (30). Considering the above, we studied the effects of acetaldehyde and barbiturates on the binding of indoleacetaldehydes to brain tissue. In addition, the interaction of tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids, as well as morphine with serotonergic receptors in brain, was investigated.

5 ~g TIQ. The hypothermic response was diminished 6-fo1d in rats that had been previously treated with intraventricular 6-hydroxydopamine to destroy catecholamine terminals in the brain. The data show that the TIQ evokes hypothermia by releasing catecho1amines from nerve endings in the brain. It follows, therefore, that TIQs can penetrate into catecholamine terminals in the brain in vivo. These observations tend to support a false transmitter role for TIQs in the brain. CONCLUS IONS The combined data support the point of view that TIQs can be synthesized in tissues during alcohol intake and that the TIQs may be capable of functioning as false adrenergic neurotransmitters.
