          Abstract

          Steady state levels of serotonin (5HT) in several hypothalamic nuclei of male rats increased when measured 7 days after castration. This effect was reversed by the administration of testosterone propionate (TP). 5HT content of the caudate nucleus, hippocampus and amygdala were measured in castrated rats and in castrated rats which received TP. No change in content was measured.
