Neuroendocrinology is a rapidly growing field that investigates the interactions between the nervous and endocrine systems. The hypothalamus, located at the base of the brain, plays a key role in regulating the activity of various endocrine glands throughout the body. The study of neuroendocrinology is critical for understanding the mechanisms of communication and regulation between the brain and hormonal system, and has important implications for various disorders such as diabetes, obesity, depression, and infertility. In this mini-review, we provide an overview of the fundamental concepts and current research trends in neuroendocrinology, highlighting its importance in our understanding of behavior, physiology, and health.
