MCH is synthesized in the magnocellular
neurons in the lateral hypothalamus.
 documented that apelin-13 administration onto the hypothalamic supraoptic nucleus increased the firing rates of vasopressin cells but had no effect on the firing rate of oxytocin neurons, suggesting a local autocrine feedback action of apelin on magnocellular
These optic nerve alterations are due to degeneration of axons and larger cells of the GCL and NFL  in the central and peripheral portions of the retina, which are involved in the magnocellular
pathway and ensure greater optic nerve caliber .
Release of oxytocin and vasopressin by magnocellular
nuclei in vitro: Specific facilitatory effect of oxytocin on its own release.
The posterior or neurohypophyseal lobe of the pituitary contains the terminals of certain neurons (i.e., magnocellular
vasopressin- and oxytocin-producing neurons) originating in two specific sections (i.e., the paraventricular nuclei [PVN] and supraoptic nuclei) of the hypothalamus.
Visual perception deficits associated with the magnocellular
pathway in schizophrenia.
Ansiometropic amblyopia: spatial contrast sensitivity deficits in inferred magnocellular
and parvocellular vision.

cells of the rat supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei," American Journal of Physiology--Endocrinology and Metabolism, vol.
Tract-tracing experiments have revealed direct fiber connections from magnocellular
neurons of the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) to the hippocampus , with reciprocal projections from the hippocampus back to the PVN .
