Parts of Median eminence


  • Externally Sourced Definition: * Raised area at the infundibular region of the HYPOTHALAMUS at the floor of the BRAIN, ventral to the THIRD VENTRICLE and adjacent to the ARCUATE NUCLEUS. It contains the terminals of hypothalamic neurons and the capillary network of hypophyseal portal system, thus serving as a neuroendocrine link between the brain and the PITUITARY GLAND. (MSH) * raised area on the infundibular neurohypophysis which contains the primary capillary network of the hypophyseal portal system. (CSP)
