Formation of the mammalian endocrine system and neuroendocrine organs involves complex regulatory networks resulting in a highly specialized cell system able to secrete a diverse array of peptide hormones. The hypothalamus is located in the mediobasal region of the brain and acts as a gateway between the endocrine and nervous systems. From an endocrinology perspective, the parvicellular neurons of the hypothalamus are of particular interest as they function as a control centre for several… CONTINUE READING
