Abstract

Abstract— The levels of free amino acids in subcellular fractions of guinea pig cerebral cortex have been determined. Putative transmitter amino acids are not bound to synaptic vesicles in a manner analogous to acetylcholine, as shown by the failure of hypo‐osmotic shock to cause a specific release of the excitant and depressant amino acids.
