Animal Physiology Lecture Notes 12-4-07 Vertebrate Endocrinology cont. P. pituitary and A. pituitary differ in what hormones they release and how they are released, as mentioned in pervious lecture P. pituitary Nothing more than capillary bed surrounded by axons…ADH and oxytocin released as neurohormones into capillary beds…travel through CS to area of interest and released at target tissue A. Pituitary hormones are not activated by nervous system…they are hormones produced to regulate the release of anterior pituitary….hypothalamus releases “releasing hormones” , that activate the A.P. and released into a capillary bed (pg. 41) just as with the P.P…these hormones then follow a vein to a second capillary bed in the A.P….this vein is known as a portal vein--a unique vessel in the CS because it is found between 2 capillary veins…these releasing hormones seek out cell s that have specific receptors, these cells trigger processing and release of hormones within the A.P…..the releasing hormones regulate the productivity of hormones within the A.P.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
