The amphibian Xenopus laevis is able to adapt to a dark background by releasing melanophore-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) from the melanotrope cells in the pars intermedia of the pituitary gland. This mechanism is being used as a model to study fundamentals of neuroendocrine information processing. Recent data obtained from multidisciplinary studies in our group on the functioning and hypothalamic regulation of Xenopus melanotropes arc reviewed.
