An attempt has been made to give in this article a review of some of our activities since I first met Ernst Fischer in Göttingen many years ago. I have not related the work of our laboratory to that of others. Also, I have only described observations made on chromaffin tissue. The catecholamines have acquired a much wider importance with their discovery in adrenergic neurones, and, more recently, in the central nervous system. However, the study of a more homogenous tissue has the advantage of greater simplicity. Some of the findings made on the adrenal medulla, e.g. the enzyme studies, are of immediate relevance to nervous tissue. To what extent the new findings on amine storage and release have a counterpart in neurones, remains to be elucidated in the future.
