Reviewed in this article are those studies that have contributed heavily to our current conceptualizations of glial participation in the functioning of the magnocellular hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system. This system undergoes remarkable morphological and functional reorganization induced by increased demand for peptide synthesis and release, and this reorganization involves the astrocytic elements in primary roles. Under basal conditions, these glia appear to be vested with the… CONTINUE READING
