The probable mechanisms involved in the central stimulating action, as measured by an increase ion locomotor activity of animals, were investigated for a number of phenylethylamine derivatives. Amphetamine, methylamphetamine, propylhexedrine, phentermine, mephentermine and p-chloroamphetamine probably produce their stimulant action by a release of catecholamines from neuronal extragranular pools.
