The finding that the diencephalic region is a major target of pesticide toxic effects should not be surprising because polychlorinated biphenyls interfere with other hypothalamic activities, including the regulation of body temperature and the activities of the hypothalamic--pituitary--gonadal circuits, with severe consequences on reproductive and hormone-releasing activities (Bloomquist 2003; Cooper et al.
The effects of endosulfan were instead involved mainly with axonal deformations of interneurons in diencephalic areas such as NSC and preoptic area of the hypothalamus, an effect that tends to overlap cellular alterations and interstitial infiltration events induced by the pesticide carbofuran in teleosts (Ram et al.
