Until relatively recently the hypothalamus received little or no attention in clinical and relatively little even in physiological literature, but recognition of its importance as a regulating organ in the animal economy has stimulated numerous physiological studies defining this relationship. The topics discussed include Neural Pathways to the Hypophysis (J. D. Green); Neurosecretion in the Central Nervous System (W. Hild); Hypothalamic Control of the Anterior Lobe of the Hypophysis (G. W. Harris); Hypothalamic-Hypophysial Interrelationships in the Production of Pituitary Hormones in Vitro (R. Guillemin); The Relation Between Anterior and Posterior Hypophyses and the Hypothalamus in Response to Stress (M. Stein and I. A. Mirsky); Telencephalic Influences upon the Hypothalamus (P. Gloor); Steroid Hormonal Response to Stimulation of the Brain (J. L. Pool and others); and Hypothalamic-Hypophysial Dysfunction in Man (C. L. Spurr and S. H. Stribling). Each paper is followed by a discussion. The book has been carefully edited and
