Introduction: Sea changes in reproductive physiology

VOLUME 114, ISSUE 2, P189-190


Craig Niederberger, M.D., Antonio Pellicer, M.D.

This series of reviews covers unexpected and thought-provoking advances in the hypothalamus and pituitary, folliculogenesis, ovulatory triggering, what triggering misses physiologically, control of follicular growth and in vitro activation, and the relationship between male genitourinary birth defects and male infertility.
