Abstract

Gustave Roussy (1874-1948) is remembered as a distinguished French neuropathologist and a leader in the field of oncology. However, his original contribution to the study of hypothalamic functions and neuroendocrinology remains ignored. Among Roussy's discoveries is the first experimental demonstration of the hypothalamic origin of diabetes insipidus and adiposo-genital dystrophy. Also, based on his own histological work, he pioneered the concept of neurosecretion, which was termed by him "neuricrinie".
