The purpose of the present investigation was to study the effect of a single carbaryl dose on serotonin metabolism in the rat brain. Male albino rats (Holtzman) weighing 150-180 g were used in this study. All animals were housed in groups for several weeks, and fed a standard diet of Purina laboratory chow. Carbaryl was administered orally as a suspension in peanut oil at a single dosage of 60 mg/kg. Control rats received only peanut oil. Animals were killed by decapitation, and the brain was quickly removed and extracted. All determinations were made on whole brain.
