Know when prior to puberty testosterone is secreted in the male and the effect it has at that time. Understand the functions of FSH and LH in the male. Describe Sertoli cells and interstitial (Leydig) cells. Describe testosterone’s and inhibin’s feedback effect on the hypothalamus and/or anterior pituitary. (Where does inhibin come from?)
