A hormone ensures its future
Date:11/2/2011

adult neurohypophysis, is involved in the development of this brain area already in the embryo. At this stage, the oxytocin governs the formation of new blood vessels. 'The messenger helps to build the road for transmitting its own future messages,' says Levkowitz. Developmental Cell highlighted the study's findings in a preview headlined, 'The Hormone of Love Attracts a Partner for Life.'

These findings provide an important advance in basic research because they shed light on fundamental brain processes, but in the future they might also be relevant to the treatment of disease. Since the neurohypophysis is one of only a few portions of the brain able to regenerate after injury, an understanding of how it is formed may one day help achieve such regeneration in other parts of the central nervous system.
