Abstract

Unilateral complete isolation of the medial basal hypothalamus was found to interfere with compensatory ovarian growth after the removal of one ovary when brain surgery and hemiovariectomy had been performed on the same side. On the contrary, hypothalamic deafferentiation contralateral to ovariectomy did not influence compensatory ovarian growth. The data support the view that a pure neuronal mechanism would participate in the development of compensatory ovarian growth.
