This illustration is intended to communicate the neural and endocrine pathways of the milk ejection reflex in humans. The illustration differentiates between the anatomy of the adenohypophysis and neurohypophysis and how they stimulate the productions of the hormones necessary for milk production and ejection.

This illustration is a mock up for a full page textbook layout in a chapter on Neuroanatomy or Endocrinology.
