. 1996 ). In rats with PSC, VP and oxytocin are transported via the newly formed neurohumoral connections from the remnants of the neural lobe axons to the long portal vessels ( Makara et al. 1995 , 1996 ). We have found that humoral (agglutinin

Oxytocin is now known to have anorexigenic and bone anabolic effects ( Tamma et al . 2009 ), and oxytocin levels are lower in women with AN than controls and are associated with lower BMD ( Lawson et al . 2011 b ). Fig. 6 summarizes the various hormonal
