In the customary sense, the neurohypophysis is the posterior lobe (neural lobe) of the hypophysis (Fig. 1) situated together with the main substance of the adeno-hypophysis in the pituitary fossa of the sphenoid bone. Actually the posterior lobe is only a part of that portion of the hypothalamus which is to be defined as the neurohypophysis.
