By Cecilie V. on 28. November 2016 for Endocrine System: Pituitary Gland

very nice overview of the Hypophysis. It helped me clearify things that were very vague and difficult to understand in my textbook, like Hypothalamic regulation via the hypophysial portal vein to the adenohypophysis. Thank you :)

Perfect lecture
