Project: The hypothalamic-hypophysial regulation of gonadotropin secretion. The metabolism of gonadal steroid hormones in the hypophysis-hypothalamus & the electrophysiological regulation of the hypothalamus.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
The aim is to study the regulation mechanisms of the hupothalamo-hypophysial-gonadal axis. The pulsatile secretion of hypothalamic LHRH and hypophysial gonadotropins will be studied in correlation with the hypothalamic electrophysiological activity and the hypothalamo-hypophysial steroidmetabolism. The research is directed to a better knowledge of the regulation of the reproductive function and its disturbances.
