Abstract: Immuno-enzyme cytochemical investigations, using single and double staining techniques, showed that the external region of the rat median eminence contains separate neurophysin-vasopressin fibres and neurophysin-oxytocin fibres. These neurophysin-hormone containing nerve fibres are influenced by bilateral adrenalectomy and by colchicine treatment. The external region of the median eminence of the homozygous Brattleboro rat contains neurophysin-oxytocin fibres. It does not contain immuno-reactive neurophysin-vasopressin fibres. Bilateral adrenalectomy also influences the neurophysin-vasopressin containing neurons of the suprachiasmatic nuclei. In the neurons of the parvicellular part of the rat hypothalamic paraventricular nuclei, staining for vasopressin and for oxytocin is completely absent.
