A Hypothalamic Hormone -Somatostatin- from Endocrinology to Neurophysiology

1992 Folia Endocrinologica Japonica  
The densest distribution of somatostatin (SRIF) neuron perikarya is localized in the hypothalamic periventricular nucleus (Pe) close to the third ventricle, from which many fibers are projected to the median eminence. The release of SRIF in the neurohemal organ distributed in many periventricular structures in the lateral and third ventricles. These 第68巻 第5号 508 視床 下 部 ソマ トス タチ ンの生理 機 能(鈴 木) findings suggest that SRIF produced in the Pe neurons is transported to other brain areas via
