    • Leutinizing hormone (LH)
    • Adenocorticotropic (ACTH)
    • Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
    • Prolactin (PRL)
    • Growth hormone (GH)
  3. Neurohypophysis (posterior pituitary)
    oxytoxin and antidiuretic (ADH)
  4. Thyroid gland secretes what hormones?
    • Thyroid hormone (Thyroxine T4 and T3)
    • and Calcitonin
  5. Parathyroid gland releases what hormones?

    adrenal medulla (middle part of the adrenal glands) and adrenal cortex
  7. Adrenal medulla secretes what hormones?
    epinephrine and norepinephrine which is used in flight or fight
  8. Adrenal cortex secretes what hormones?
    • mineralcorticoids (aldosterone), glucocorticoids (cortisone), gonadocorticoids (sex hormones)
