Serotonin content was not affected in all the three experimental groups when comparison was made between each other. In the hypothalamus, data in table 2 reveal that the norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin in the group exposed to the unleaded gasoline were lower than those of the control

Nnervations reaches out to the hypothalamus to regulate secretion of TRH and prolactin secretion, and then projects to the brain limbic system to modulate motivations and emotions [47]. So, gasoline induced impairment of the DA system would result in serious impacts on the neural control of voluntary locomotion and would affect several behavioural aspects.In the present study, the norepinephrine l

Athione S -transferase activity, and lipid peroxidation was observed in liver and brain. Exposure to toluene, one of the gasoline constituents, both in vivo and in vitro, leads to reactive oxygen species formation in many tissues including brain tissue [36-38]. The study of Calder -Guzm et al [39] revealed that the aldehydes resulting from the oxidation of the methyl groups in the aromatic compou
