1. Distance receptor information indicating the presentation of Na+ containing solutions caused a wide variety of behaviour changes in Na+ deficient sheep. These involved the skeletal musculature with stamping and bleating, and also the excitation of medullary centres as evidenced by profuse salivation, increase of blood pressure, cardiac rate, and respiration. 2. The extent of behaviour change was related to degree of Na+ deficit, and following Na ingestion these behaviour manifestations were greatly reduced or disappeared. 3. Observations on the procedure of acceptance and rejection of solutions of NaHCO3, NaCl and KCI and water offered to Na+ replete and Na+ deficient animals confirmed the relation of appetite to state of Na+ balance, and substantiated the specifity of the appetite for Na+, particularly for NaHCO3.
