Two distinct subgroups of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons are involved in the control of luteinizing hormone secretion, at least in rats: one subgroup located in the mediobasal hypothalamus constitutes the GnRH pulse generator associated with opioid neurons, and the other located in the preoptic area constitutes the GnRH surge generator associated with gamma-aminobutyric acid neurons.
