Abstract
Do the CNS monoaminergic (MA) systems regulate thyroid hormone metabolism in humans? In 23 unmedicated, male, violent offenders without signs of thyroid disease, we found positive correlations between the catecholaminergic CSF metabolites HVA and MHPG and the peripheral T3/T4 ratio (rho=0.55, p=0.010 and 0.51, p=0.018), indicating that increased activity in the brain MA systems, especially the dopaminergic, is associated with increased peripheral thyroid hormone activity.
