The role of the dendrites of magnocellular neurones in the release of neurosecretory peptides and the synthesis of many proteins locally is reviewed. Oxytocin and vasopressin contained in dense-cored neurosecretory vesicles are released from magnocellular dendrites not only by excitatory transmitters such as glutamate acting through well-established receptors, but also by a rapid action of oestradiol acting by a mechanism which appears to involve NMDA receptors. Magnocellular dendrites also c...Expand abstract
