Abstract

In studies that isolated the pituitary from endogenous GnRH stimulation, aging attenuated the LH and FSH responses to exogenous GnRH in PMW. These studies indicate that the pituitary plays a role in the decline in gonadotropin levels with aging, further supporting the potential contribution of age-associated changes in both hypothalamic and pituitary function to reproductive senescence.
