    arrival of neurotransmitters at neuroglandular junctions
  24. What is significant about positive feedback?
    • the only process that must be rushed to complete
    • the secretion of a hormone triggers an effect that further stimulates hormone releases
  25. What is ADH?
    anti- diuretic hormone

    • secrete regulatory hormones
    • release ADH and oxytocin into pituitary
    • ANS center
  28. What is an example of positive feedback?
    Oxytocin during labor triggers uterine contractions, which cause more secretions of oxytocin
