  • SummaryThe differentiated cytology, cytochemistry, and functions within subdivisions of the tuber cinereum prompted this morphometric and physiological investigation of capillaries in the median eminence and arcuate nucleus of albino rats. Morphometric studies established that the external zone of the median eminence had 3–5 times the number and surface area of true and sinusoidal capillaries than the internal or subependymal median eminence zones, or either of two subdivisions examined in the… CONTINUE READING
