Pituitary and Neuroendocrinology


Anterior pituitary dysfunction causes either due to hyper secretion or hypo secretion of pituitary hormones. Brain control of the synthesis and secretion of pituitary AdrenoCorticoTrophic Hormone (ACTH) is mediated by neurohormones released from the hypothalamus at the bottom of the brain and transported by the hypophysial portal vessels to the anterior pituitary gland. The brain-pituitary neuroendocrine system processes information from and enables endocrine responses to external factors, like stress, day length and changes in ambient temperature.
