The regional distribution of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in rat brain was studied. The greatest concentration of TRH was found in the median eminence. High concentrations were also found in several hypothalamic nuclei. Outside the hypothalamus, relatively large amounts of TRH were found in the septal and preoptic areas.
