Most hypophysiotrophic cells were found in the hypothalamus and were distributed throughout its rostrocaudal extent: nucleus preopticus periventricularis, pars anterior and posterior; suprachiasmatic nucleus; anterior, dorsal, ventral, lateral, and caudal hypothalamic nuclei; and nucleus tuberis lateralis, pars… CONTINUE READING
