The following papers have come to our attention after submission of the original manuscript. Minnich et al. (Union Méd. Can. 102: 903-906, 1973) reported that angiotensin injections into the cerebroventricles of rats increase dopamine levels in the hypothalamus, pons-medulla, striatum and cerebellum. Norepinephrine levels in the hippocampus and cerebellum were also increased. Goldstein et al. (J. Neurochem. 19: 2451-2452, 1972) reported on the presence and partial purification of angiotensinase activity in rat and dog brain. Fukiyama (Jap. Heart J. 14:135-139, 1973) reported that stimulation of the carotid sinus nerve of dogs causes less bradycardia and hypotension when angiotensin is infused through the vertebral arteries.
