[ Related articles | Random article | Source site ]

Pierre Lalouette de Vernicourt (1711 - 1792) was a distinguished French anatomist.

Lalouette described a lobe present in around a third of the population's thyroids that would later be called the Lalouette's Pyramid. When asked about a possible function for the thyroid gland, Lalouette said that it "would intervene to modulate voice expression by the liquid it produces."
