The external layer of the median eminence is comprised of nerve fibres that terminate on the primary plexus of the hypophysial portal vessels. This system is a unique neurovascular synapse which can be used as a window through which may be studied the characteristics of central neurotransmission. The heterogeneity of the neuropil of the external layer of the median eminence, in terms of neurotransmitter types, carries the advantage that interactions between different classes of neurons can be… CONTINUE READING
