Using the India ink technique, the vascular supply of the medial basal hypothalamus (the hypophysiotrophic area) was studied from the viewpoint of deafferentation of this region. It was found that on the basis of blood supply the area can be divided into 3 regions: the suprachiasmatic region getting its vessels anteriorly, the midhypothalamus being supplied by vessels arising from the base of the brain, and the premammillary mammillary region receiving its vessels posteriorly. Following deafferentation of the medial basal hypothalamus, capillaries connecting the isolated area with the rest of the brain were first observed 4 days after the intervention.
