- Recently, however, it has been observed that in the hypothalamus there are
neuro-secretory or "glandular" cells from which there proceed nerve fibres which
convey specialized substances to the pituitary portal system and to the cells
of the pituitary gland, for the production of various hormones which are then
extracted from the blood stream by many internal secretory glands to regulate
growth and other body functions. (See references in the British quarterly Endeavor,
July 1960, pages 125 133.)
An increasing interest has been shown by scientists in Swedenborg's anticipative
statements about the dominant functions of the pituitary and other endocrine
glands, and about the cerebro-spinal fluids.
