Points from Foregoing Letters


    D. Y. Solandt and C. H. Best, from experiments made with rats, conclude that deficient vagus function may be associated with a diet poor in choline and that this may, in part at least, be rectified by injected choline. Thus, it is suggested that choline deficiency may result in deficient formation of acetylcholine at the nerve endings.
