Abstract

Content of dopamine in the striatum; of serotonin, 5-hydroxyindolacetic acid and noradrenaline in the hypothalamus, striatum and midbrain was studied in three groups of minks from population of an animal farm, differing by their reaction to humans (cowardly, calm, aggressive). The reaction to humans was estimated by a system of marks at the attempt to catch the mink with a mitten. Aggressive animals had a lowered level of serotonin in the hypothalamus and striatum, a lesser content of serotonin metabolite--5-hydroxyindolacetic acid in the striatum. Minks of different groups did not differ by noradrenaline content, but dopamine level in the striatum of cowardly minks was higher than in calm and aggressive animals. Conclusion is made that polymorphism of behaviour corresponds to polymorphism of the state of monoaminergic systems.
