The decapeptide gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) came into prominence because of its roles in releasing luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone and promoting reproductive behavior. At least three aspects of GnRH neurobiology have features which may be universal among vertebrates. First, the GnRH neuronal migration from the olfactory placode into the basal forebrain appears to hold true for forms ranging from fish to humans. Second, for proper agonist activity in the anterior… CONTINUE READING
