The Neurohypophysis: Stucture, Function and Control

Edited by

  • B.A. Cross
  • G. Leng

Dramatic advances have occurred over the last decade in the physiology and biochemistry of the neurohypophysis and its importance to human (and animal) welfare. This book of expert contributions contains valuable reviews of some concepts that have already won wide acceptance, and expositions of some novel ones that have yet to be assimilated. Old questions, like that of the location of osmoreceptors in the brain are given another airing with new data, and some new questions, such as the nature and function of opioid terminals in the neural lobe, are brought up for examination by endocrinologists, physiologists, anatomists and biochemists.
