The distribution of biogenic amines, their precursors, and metabolites in the central nervous system (CNS) of the cricket was determined using HPLC with electrochemical detection. Three biogenic amines, octopamine (OA), dopamine (DA), and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT); two precursors, tyramine and tryptophan; and two metabolites, synephrine and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid, were detected in all ganglia. In the brain, 5-HT occurred in the largest quantities followed by OA, while in other ganglia OA occurred in the largest quantities followed by 5-HT and DA. In all ganglia, the amount of OA was two to nine times greater than that of DA. The results are discussed in comparison with different insect species.
