Corticosteroid receptors were determined by saturation analysis in the CNS of the rat in the medial hypothalamus, the hippocampus and the parietal cerebral hemisphere. No corticosteroid binding was obtained in the pituitary, the septum, the amygdalum or anterior hypothalamus. These results suggest that the extrahypothalamic nervous structures play a role in the feedback corticosteroids and through it in the control of the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal system.
