Abstract: The results of an immunohistochemical investigation of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system in several species of birds have shown that: (1) mesotocin and vasotocin are synthesized in separate neurons; (2) in all species investigated the distribution of mesotocinergic and vasotocinergic perikarya follows a common pattern; (3) the external zone of the avian anterior median eminence contains exclusively vasotocinergic nerve fibers, originating in supraoptic and ventral paraventricular regions; (4) the distribution of immunoreactive elements in the neural lobe shows a definite species-dependent pattern.
