QuestionAnswer
What is the target/function of melatonin? BRAIN; Helps set biological clock
What is the target/function of releasing hormones? (RH) ANTERIOR LOBE; Regulates secretion of anterior pituitary hormones: stimulates secretion
What is the target/function of inhibiting hormones? (IH) ANTERIOR LOBE; Regulates secretion of anterior pituitary hormones: inhibits secretion
What is the target/function of ACTH? ADRENAL CORTEX; Stimulates secretion of cortisol and androgens and to a lesser extent aldosterone
What is the target/function of FSH? OVARIES/TESTES; In female: stimulates egg growth and estrogen secretion In male: stimulates sperm production
What is the target/function of LH? OVARIES/TESTES; In female: triggers ovulation and estrogen and progesterone secretion In male: stimulates testosterone secretion
What is the target/function of hGH? BONE/CARTILAGE CELLS, SKELETAL MUSCLE, OTHER BODY TISSUES; Stimulates tissue growth and metabolism
What is the target/function of TSH? THYROID GLAND; Stimulates growth of thyroid gland and T3 & T4 secretions
What is the target/function of PRL? MAMMARY GLANDS; Stimulates milk production (lactation)
What is the target/function of ADH? KIDNEYS; Decreases water loss in urine and returns it to the blood
What is the target/function of OT? UTERUS/MAMMARY GLANDS; Stimulates uterine contraction in childbirth and milk ejection during breast feeding
What is the target/function of thyroxine (T4) & (T3)? MOST BODY CELLS; Increases cellular metabolism and BMR

What is the target/function of epinephrine and norepinephrine? BODY CELLS INVOLVED IN FIGHT/FLIGHT RESPONSE (SYMPATHETIC NS); Promotes fight-or-flight response
What is the target/function of aldosterone? KIDNEYS; Decreases water & sodium loss in urine & returns them to the blood, but increases potassium urine loss
What is the target/function of cortisol? LIVER, MUSCLE AND CELLS INVOLVED IN BODY DEFENSES; Increases resistance to stress, increases blood glucose levels, & decreases internal inflammation
What is the target/function of insulin? MOST BODY CELLS; Promotes blood glucose uptake by most body cells, esp muscle and fat cells
What is the target/function of glucagon? LIVER; Increases blood glucose levels by stimulating the breakdown of glycogen
What is the target/function of testosterone? TESTES, MUSCLE, & OTHER BODY CELLS INVOLVED IN MALE SEXUAL CHARACTERISTICS; Stimulates development of male sex characteristics, male sex drive, & regulates sperm production
What is the target/function of estrogens? UTERUS, MAMMARY GLANDS & OTHER BODY CELLS INVOLVED IN FEMALE SEXUAL CHARACTERISTICS; Stimulates development of female sex characteristics, & helps regulate menstrual cycle
What is the target/function of progesterone? UTERUS/MAMMARY GLANDS; With estrogen promotes breast development and cyclic changes in the uterus during menstrual cycle
What hormones are secreted by the pineal gland? Melatonin
What hormones are released by the hypothalamus? Releasing hormones (RH) Inhibiting hormones (IH) ADH (posterior lobe) OT (posterior lobe)
What hormones are released by the anterior lobe? ACTH FSH LH hGH TSH PRL
What hormones are released by the thyroid gland? Thyroxine (T3,T4)
What hormones are released by the parathyroid gland? PTH
What hormones are released by the adrenal cortex? Androgens Aldosterone Cortisol
What hormones are released by the adrenal medulla? Epinephrine Norepinephrine
What hormones are released by the pancreas? Insulin
