Neuroendocrine regulation of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in the tuberoinfundibular system

J Endocrinol Invest. 1993 Oct;16(9):715-53. doi: 10.1007/BF03348918.

Abstract

[...] It is now required to list each part needed for mucous excretion. They are two ducts in the brain substance, then a thin portion of membrane shaped as the infundibulum, then the gland that receives the tip of this infundibulum and the ducts that drive the mucus (pituita) from this gland to the palate and nares. [...] and I said that one (duct) [...] from the middle of the common cavity (third ventricle) descends [...] into the brain substance, and the end of this duct is [...] the sinus of the gland where the brain mucus is collected [...].
