Pituitary Neurohypophysis Herring Bodies electron micrograph

The lobule of the opossum neurohypophysis is divided into three regions: a hilar, a palisade, and a septal zone.

This micrograph of the hilar region demonstrates two adjacent Herring bodies that occupy a major portion of the field. They are large bodies packed with neurosecretory granules that have been described as end bulb formations of axons.

At the upper right and lower left are fascicles of unmyelinated axons. Lead stained. X 13,500.
