Transsynaptic connections between the hypothalamus and adipose tissue: relationship to reproduction

Czaja K.

Neurophysiological mechanisms that control energy balance are reciprocally linked to those that control reproduction. Neuromorphological studies using retrograde tracing methods revealed that nerve cells within the central (CNS) and autonomic (ANS) nervous systems in different species, including the pig, are transsynaptically connected to different fat tissue depots. In the pig, neurons localised in the paraventricular nucleus, supraoptic nucleus and arcuate nucleus were...
