On the other hand, I think it is very specious to say because something is there it must be active-all one can say is that if it is there it might act. We have recently obtained radioautographs of triiodothyronine in various regions of the hypothalamus. In addition to the marked concentration in the stalk of the pituitary, there is also a noticeable concentration in the region of the paraventricular nucleus. 32 DISCUSSION Courrier: Thyroxine has perhaps a direct action upon the anterior pituitary, but it probably acts upon the hypothalamus since it modifies the neurosecretion of hypothalamic centres.

In addition, the high level of radioiodine metabolism maintained by these animals without propylthiouracil treatment cannot be explained on the basis of a decreased content of hormonal iodine in the thyroid since the procedures of implantation and hypophysectomy would not be expected to change thyroidal iodine stores. It seems probable that the heterotopic pituitaries are not producing a normal amount of thyroxine because the hosts are essentially in a hypophysectomized state and require less. Otherwise one would expect that additional amounts of transplanted pituitary tissue would increase thyroidal function, which they do not.
