The posterior pituitary is supplied by the inferior hypophyseal arter- ies. In contrast to the anterior pituitary, the posterior lobe is directly innervated by hypothalamic neurons (supraopticohypophyseal and tuberohypophyseal nerve tracts) via the pituitary stalk (Chap. 374) . Thus, posterior pituitary production of vasopressin (antidiuretic hor- mone [ADH]) and oxytocin is particularly sensitive to neuronal dam- age by lesions that affect the pituitary stalk or hypothalamus.
