Abstract

Methods for detection and micro-quantitation of endogenous piperidine were applied for the first time to brain tissue of sleeping and active hamsters. Piperidine levels in dormant hamsters were over three times that of active hamsters. In addition, a 40-fold increase in the general piperidine level was found which is higher than earlier reports with mice.
