Fetal brain growth: selective action by growth hormone

Abstract

Growth hormone was administered to pregnant rats maintained under dietary control, and fetal and placental growth and nutrition were examined. Growth hormone had a selective action on brain growth that could not be attributed to nutrient mobilization but suggested a trophic factor which is unique to the brain.
