Neurohypophysial hormones are packed in secretory granules which are stored in nerve endings and in dilatations called nerve swellings. Although it was originally believed that the nerve swellings were storage compartments and that release occurred solely from the nerve terminals, the present paper demonstrates that secretion can occur to the same extent from both nerve endings and nerve swellings.
