animal physiology

test 2

appetite is controlled by what two physiological systems? hormonal and neural systems
What are four major hormones involved in appetite and digestion? leptin, ghrelin, peptide YY, somatostatin
Hormone that is secreted by white adipose tissue when lipid content is high, supresses appetite. leptin
hormone secreted by stomach when it is empty, stimulates appetite. Ghrelin
