Kisspeptin has been recognized as a key regulator of GnRH secretion during puberty and adulthood, conveying the feedback influence of endogenous gonadal steroids onto the GnRH system. Understanding the functional roles of this peptide depends on knowledge of the anatomical framework in which it acts, including the location of kisspeptin-expressing cells in the brain and their connections. In this paper, we review current data on the anatomy of the kisspeptin neuronal network, including its… CONTINUE READING
