Lesions that destroy the hypothalamic paraventricular nuclei cause TRH levels in the median eminence to fall precipitously. Thus, TRH in the median eminence seems to be provided by neurons in or immediately adjacent to the paraventricular nuclei. This suggestion is consistent with the results of earlier anatomical and physiological studies.
