Action of Neurotropic Drugs on the Tropic Functions of the Pituitary

  • S. V. Anichkov
  • V. E. Ryzhenkov


Studies of neurotropic drugs acting through the nervous system on the endocrine glands belong to that field of neuroendocrinology which may be called pharmacological neuroendocrinology. The basis of these studies lies in the acceptance of the close interactions between the central nervous system and the endocrine system (Itsenko 1946, Harris 1955, 1967, Lissák and Endrőczi 1960, Szent-ágothai et al. 1962, Schally and Kastin 1969).
