The Regulatory Centers of Endocrine Glands in the Hypothalamus

  • Walter Hohlweg
Part of the Perspectives in Neuroendocrine Research book series (PNR, volume 1)


In a speech to the Royal and Imperial Society of Physicians in Vienna in 1912 Bernhard Aschner closed with the following words:

Not only hypophysectomy, but even a mere wound in the base of the thalamencephalon leads to atrophy of the gonads in male and female dogs. The extent to which the hypothalamus can be regarded as a regulatory center for endocrine glands must therefore be decided after further research has been carried out.
