Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Mark all that apply to Anterior Pituitary Glands.
    • A. 

      It includes target glands : thyroid and parathyroid glands

      It produces Oxytocin

    • C. 

      It is considered the "master gland"

    • D. 

      It includes target glands: Adrenal and Gonads

    • E. 

      Secretes hormones that stimulate the relaease of other hormones from target glands

  • 2.

    • A. 

      Is located beneath the hypothalamus

    • B. 

      Aids in the excretion of Oytocin (responsible for uterine activity during PG and contributes to the release of breast milk)

    • C. 

      Stores the Antidiuretic Hormones (ADH/ vasopression)

    • D. 

      Is responsible for the release of growth hormone and melanocyte stimulating hormone

    • E. 

      Is located at the base of the brain

  • 3. 
    Mark all that is true about Growth Hormone...
    • A. 

      Acts only on bones

    • B. 

      Has a effect on insulin resistance

    • C. 

      Acts on all body tissues (bones and muscles)

    • D. 

      Is regulated only by the GH-inhibiting hormone or somatostatin

    • E. 

      Is effected by the amount of sleep, exercise, and stress

  • 4. 
    True of False.  Hormonal deficit is usually related to pituitary defects.
  • 5. 
    True or False.  Malfunctioning of the Pituitary Gland can cause excess or a deficit of hormonal stimulation.
  • 6. 
    True or false.  If excess hormone is secreted from a target gland, hormonal released from the anterior pituitary is suppressed.  This is called NEGITIVE FEEDBACK SYSTEM.
