Abstract: An electron-microscopic study was carried out on the median eminence of cats during post-natal development. From the moment of birth (observations performed 12 hours later) Herring bodies were seen in the fibrillary layer of the median eminence. At 45 days after birth, myelinated nerve fibres could be observed, some of them containing neurosecretory granules. The number of myelinated fibres in the median eminence increased with age and at 90 days some Herring bodies appeared surrounded by myelin sheaths; these mainly contained neurosecretory granules and a few mitochondria.
