Progress in the understanding of the physiological and pathological functions of the placenta introduced the concept that the placenta is a neuroendocrine organ, since it shows local production and release of substances analog to neurohormones. These products act as endocrine, paracrine and autocrine factors to control the secretion of other regulatory molecules, including the pituitary hormones of both mother and fetus and their placental counterparts. Furthermore, they may play a role in the… CONTINUE READING
