There is now convincing evidence for the distribution of several nerve plexuses in the outer zone of the adrenal cortex. At the ultrastructural level, the close proximity of nerve boutons to cortical cells establishes the anatomical substrate for a direct neural effect on adrenal cortical cell functions. Of those neurotransmitters and neuropeptides identified to date, catecholamine, VIP, and NPY appear to be most prevalent. Importantly, the amounts of morphologically identifiable catecholamine… CONTINUE READING
