what does this mean:

at intervals, branches from the hepatic artery and hepatic portal vein enter the lobules.

particularly the 'at intervals' bit of the sentence is what i don't get

"At intervals" means pretty much "every now and then" for example, "at intervals of five minutes", or five hours, or however long this particular example takes. So the branches from the veins enter the lobules, and then for a certain amount of time nothing happens, and then it does it again, and it repeats this way.

At intervals means 'at a number of locations along the artery or vein, which are unspecified distances apart'.
IMO this is saying there are an unspecified number of branches and these at at irregular distances from each other.

You would likely get better responses on a biology, medical, or physiology forum.
