[Effects of dihydrodinoreburnameninol on the electrical discharge of Torpedo marmorata under normal conditions and during hypoxia and anoxia. I].

The electric discharge of Torpedo M. can be considered as an index of the metabolic activity of the electric lobe of C.N.S. in groups of 10 torpedo the electric discharge was measured: the mechanical stimulus was obtained by the falling of different weights from a determinate height. Other 10 animals, to which the substance was administered, showed an increase of the electric discharge. The experiment was then repeated in conditions of hypoxia: a fall of the values of the electric discharge was observed. Finally the experiment was carried out considering the time: after 14 hours the condition of anoxia occurred.
