Exposure of the preoptic-tuberoinfundibular system to iron ions causes ovulation in the pro-oestrous rat. This electrochemical treatment has been used frequently to study the way that the hypothalamus triggers secretion of gonadotrophic hormone and most investigators have assumed that the effect is mediated by the direct excitation of those neurones exposed… (More)
