Abstract

Gonadal functions are governed by the hypothalamohypophysial system. Recent studies have demonstrated the existence of a multisynaptic neural pathway between the brain and the gonads. This review summarizes the morphological and physiological data that suggest the role of the brain-gonadal circuitry in the control of gonadal functions and discusses relevant clinical observations.
