Endocrinology - Part 44
Endocrinology is defined as the study of how chemical messenger molecules, referred to as hormones, influence physiological processes. By definition, a hormone is a signaling molecule that is released into the bloodstream, where the hormone can then travel to distant target cells and tissues within the body. Along with the nervous system, the hormones of the endocrine system provide an important means by which information travels within the body. Test your basic knowledge of the endocrine system by taking this simple quiz.
(1)   Hypoglycemia stimulates growth hormone (GH) release.
(2)   Growth hormone (GH) and __________ are responsible for exerting most of the physiological actions commonly attributed to growth hormone.
(3)   Which of the following lead(s) to inhibition of growth hormone (GH) release from the anterior pituitary gland?
