The role of oxytocin in males is not clear, although recent studies have suggested that it may participate in ejaculation. OXYTOCIN RECEPTORS The physiologic effects of oxytocin are achieved by binding to cell membrane Gq/11 protein–coupled oxytocin receptors expressed in the uterus, mammary glands, and brain. Binding of oxytocin to the receptor activates phospholipase C, producing an increase in inositol trisphosphate and 1,2-diacylglycerol, which in turn results in an increase in cytosolic calcium concentrations.

FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY The hypothalamus is the part of the diencephalon located below the thalamus and between the lamina terminalis and the mamillary bodies forming the walls and the floor of the third ventricle. At the floor of the third ventricle, the 2 halves of the hypothalamus are rejoined to form a bridge-like region known as the median eminence (Figure 2–2). The median eminence is important because this is where axon terminals of hypothalamic neurons release neuropeptides involved in the control of anterior pituitary function.
