Normal Thyroid Function and Response to Hemithyroidectomy in the Cat

Knigge K.M.

Anat Rec, 1961. 141: p.151-7.

A program of study dealing with neural regulation of thyroid function is being carried out in our laboratory (Knigge and Bierman, ’58; Knigge, ’60a, ’60b, ’61; Florshe and Knigge, ’61). One aspect of these studies deals with the role of the central nervous system in compensatory thyroid responses to hemithyroidectomy of the cat.
