Suggested Use

This is a very useful supplemental handout for use when investigating pituitary and hypothalmic hormones.  I usually have students create one of their own, so this could be a way for them to check their answers or I could use the word document and leave blanks open and have students fill them in for an assignment.  Great source!

Nicole Palenske, Central College

Very useful concept map to review all the different hormones released  by the Pituitary gland, their target organs and their primary actions. Useful resource for reviewing concept in class, can also be modified into an activity to fill in the blanks (after the instructor removes some key hormones names from the flow chart).
