The pool of key neuromediators and some neurotransmitter amino acids in cerebellum, hypothalamus and midbrain of rats exposed to chronic and different variants of interrupted alcohol intoxication was investigated. The most pronounced changes were recorded in midbrain. Chronic alcohol intoxication caused an increase in the concentrations of tyrosine, dopamine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), noradrenaline, tryptophan, serotonin, GABA and aspartate in this part of the rat brain. Interrupted alcohol intoxication with 4 days interval is accompanied by an increase in the content of tyrosine, and noradrenaline. Interrupted alcohol intoxication with 1 day interval leaded to an increase in the concentrations of tyrosine, DOPAC, noradrenalin, tryptophan, GABA, glycine and aspartate. The amino acids composition “Titacin” had a pronounced normalizing effect in the midbrain under interrupted alcohol intoxication with 1 day interval.
