REF: p. 444 13.When a staff member asks the nurse which gland secretes ADH and oxytocin, how should the nurse respond? a.Anterior pituitaryb.Posterior pituitaryc.Hypothalamusd.Pineal glandANS:BThe posterior pituitary secretes ADH, which also is called vasopressin, and oxytocin.The anterior pituitary secretes ACTH, melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH), somatotropic hormones (GH, prolactin), and glycoprotein hormones—follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), LH, and TSH.The hypothalamus secretes PRF, which stimulates secretion of prolactin; PIF (dopamine), which inhibits prolactin secretion; TRH, which affects release of thyroid hormones; GH-releasing hormone (GHRH), which stimulates the release of GH; somatostatin, which inhibits the release of GH; gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which facilitates release FSH and LH; corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which facilitates the release of ACTH and endorphins; and substance P, which inhibits ACTH release and stimulates release of a variety of other hormones.The pineal gland secretes melatonin.
