Abstract

BY a direct chemical micro method the maximum choline esterase activity of the superior cervical ganglion of the cat has been measured and found to be, on the average, equivalent to the splitting of 0·10 γ of acetylcholine chloride per sec. per mgm. of fresh tissue. The full experimental details will be given in another publication.
