The effects of ovariectomy on the ultrastructure of neurons within the SCH nuclei of the rabbit were investigated. All SCH neurons of the intact controls were similar in that they showed no morphological evidence of enhanced neurosecretory activity. In contrast, two distinct types of neurons were present within the SCH nuclei of the ovariectomized animals… CONTINUE READING
