The flashcards below were created by user tulipyoursweety on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. pineal hormone that synchronizes body rhythms
    melatonin
  2. pituitary hormone that stimulates cell growth, especially muscle and bone growth
    growth hormone (GH)
  3. thyroid hormone that stimulates metabolism (BMR) and energy utilization
    thyroxine
  4. adrenal hormone that assists glucagon in the regulation of blood glucose by promoting the breakdown of fats and proteins
    cortisol
  5. hormone that stimulates the relase of calcium from bone rresulting in an increase in blood calcium levels
    parathyroid hormone
  6. pancreatic hormone that regulates blood glucose levels by promoting the breakdown of glycogen to glucose and the production of glucose from amino acids and fats
    glucagon
  7. adrenal hormone that stimulates "flight or fight" responses, such as raised blood glucose, increased heart rate, and increased respiration rate
    epinephrine
  8. thyroid hormone that lowers blood calcium levels by increasing the deposition of calcium in the bones
    calcitonin
  9. a panceatic hormone that regulates blood glucose levels by promoting glucose entry into certain cells and promoting glucose storage
    insulin
  10. pituitary hormone that stimulates the development of mammary gland cells and production of milk
    prolactin

    E.parathyroid 
    B.adrenal medulla
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  15. The hypothalamus influences the pituitary by 
    A.releasing neurosecretions from neurosecretory cells whose secretory ends lie in the posterior pituitary 
    B.releasing neurosecretions into the blood capillary system that connects the hypothalamus with the anterior pituitary 
    C.stimulating the walls of the pituitary to contract, thus forcing hormones out of the pituitary
    D.both answers "A" & "B" above
