The median eminence (ME) is considered as the final common pathway connecting the nervous and endocrine systems. In this neurohemal structure, dynamic interactions among nerve terminals, tanycytes, and astrocytes determine through plastic processes the neurohormones access to the portal blood. Because brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is involved in… CONTINUE READING
