Degenerated nerve terminals were demonstrated in the lateral hypothalamus of the rat following transection of the rostral and caudal fibres to the medial forebrain bundle (MFB) and a parasagittal cut along the lateral edge of the hypothalamus. In the light of these findings the termination of extrahypothalamic MFB pathways on intrinsic neurons is assumed.
