Neuroendocrine control of female puberty: physiological and molecular approaches

, : Neuroendocrine control of female puberty: physiological and molecular approaches. Neural control of reproductive function Proceedings of the Fifth Galveston Neuroscience Symposium held in Galveston, Texas, May 10-13, 1988: 61-77

Studies on rats on the neural mechanisms which may be involved in the activation of LHRH secretion at puberty, the role of the hypothalamus in LHRH activation, and the potential role of growth factors in the development of the "reproductive hypothalamus" are reviewed. It is suggested that maturation of the reproductive hypothalamus may depend on the establishment of relevant neuronal contacts.

Sexual development and mature reproductive function are controlled by a handful of neurones that, located in the basal forebrain, produce the decapeptide luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH). LHRH is released into the portal system that co...

The sine qua non event of puberty is an increase in pulsatile release of gonadotrophin hormone releasing hormone (GnRH). It is now clear that this increase and, therefore, the initiation of the pubertal process itself, require both changes in tran...

It is becoming increasingly clear that astroglial cells are active participants in the process by which information is generated and disseminated within the central nervous system (CNS). In the hypothalamus, astrocytes regulate the secretory activ...
