Over the last few years, biochemical studies have established the existence of estrogen receptors in specific regions of the hypothalamus of adult male and female rats, presently indistinguishable from pituitary and uterine receptors, and of androgen receptors in the hypothalamus of the adult male. As yet, the existence of progesterone receptors is unproven (Kato, 1975).
