The specialized blood capillary system that connects the ventral hypothalamus to the anterior pituitary gland is known as the system.
Molecules that function as in the hypothalamic-pituitary axis are often neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, or paracrines in other places in the body.
Negative feedback exerted by the target hormone can be directed at the anterior pituitary gland and/or ventral hypothalamus.
Neurotransmitters and hormones function identically.
The posterior pituitary is composed of glandular tissue.
Antidiuretic hormone is also known as vasopressin.
A crying infant's ability to stimulate the release of oxytocin from its mother's hypothalamus is an example of a neuroendocrine response.
The hypothalamus' functions are completely independent of nervous input.
The breakdown of thyroid hormone occurs in peripheral tissues by removal of atoms.
An enlarged thyroid gland is known as a .
Thyroid-stimulating immunoglobin mimics the action of TSH.
In order to determine the pathology of thyroid function it is important to first determine whether the changes are due to the gland itself or changes in pituitary gland's secretion of TSH.
