My Way from Hypophysectomy to Hypophyseal Portal Vessels (1934–1954)
The story of my contribution to what nowadays is called neuroendocrinology begins with hypophysectomies in rabbits. This species is a reflex ovulatory and the study of the effects of the removal of the pituitary gland on ovulation and the formation and life-span of corpora lutea led straight into the problem of the neural control of the hypophysis.
