Electron-microscopic evidence indicates that during conditions of high hormone demand such as lactation there is a dramatic reduction in the number of fine glial processes which are normally interposed between magnocellular neuroendocrine cell somata in the supraoptic nucleus (SON). The purpose of this study was to corroborate these data at the light… CONTINUE READING
