  5. 125.What divisions of the hypothalamus are involved in hormone regulation?
    Anterior pituitary and the posterio pituitary
  6. 126.The hypothalamus interacts with the anterior pituitary via?
  7. 127.the hypothalamus interacts with the posterior pituitary via:
    Direct electrical signal via neurons
  8. 128.The CNS interacts with the adrenal medulla via:
    direct electrical signal via neurons
  9. 129.The CNS interacts with endocrine gland cells via:
    neurons synapsed in the autonomic galnglion and then direct neural contact with the gland cell.
