Abstract

The peptidergic neurons of the hypothalamus which synthesize the Releasing and Inhibiting Hormones receive three types of endocrine signals: a) from the peripheral target glands (long feedback mechanisms); b) from the anterior pituitary (short feedback mechanisms) (see for references 42 and 54); and c) from the Releasing and Inhibiting Hormones themselves (ultrashort feedback mechanisms) (20, 55; see also 42 and 54 for references). For brevity’s sake, the discussion in this paper will be limited to the presentation of some data obtained in the authors’ laboratory regarding the effects of sex steroids on the peptidergic neurons synthesizing LH-RH, and on the secretion of gonadotropins and of prolactin.
