hypothalamic

hypothalamic

pertaining to the hypothalamus.

hypothalamic hormones
hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis
the complex system of interaction between the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and adrenal cortex that involves stimulation of synthesis and release by corticotropin-releasing factor and adrenocorticotropic hormone, and the negative feedback effect of cortisol.
hypothalamic secretory neurons
are located in nuclei of the hypothalmus; they receive information from higher centers to regulate hormone secretion.
hypothalamic thermoregulatory mechanism
receptive to stimulation by pyrogens to elevate the body temperature in fever.
