Neuroendocrine Regulation: The Peptidergic Neuron Introduction and Historical Background

  • Charles H. Sawyer
Part of the Published Nobel Symposia book series (NOFS, volume 42)


The award of the 1977 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to two neuroendocrinologists for their research on hypothalamic releasing and inhibitory hormones (22) signals an increased appreciation of brain-endocrine interactions and sets the stage for this 42nd Nobel Symposium on “Principles for central neuronal regulation of the endocrine system”.
