Both complete and partial removal of the adrenal glands in the rabbit leads to development of a deficit of zinc in the brain tissue and an increase in the iron content. Copper and iron, as metallic components, go into the makeup of a number of oxidative enzymes and play an important role in the processes of tissue respiration. It may be assumed that the above-mentioned changes in the quantitative content of copper, zinc, and iron in the animal brain following epinephrectomy are of definite significance in the pathogenesis of morpho-functional disturbances of the brain, especially its higher sections, which are observed in the case of insufficient function of the adrenal glands.
