Please pick a hormone and answer the questions below.
Hormones control a great many of the reactions involved in homeostasis. Every hormone has an organ or organ part that produces it and a target or targets. Let’s take some specific hormones and look at them in more detail.
For your hormone, tell us
where it is produced
- what stimulates its production and release
- what its effects are
- what happens if you have too much of it
- what happens if you have too little of it
Try to follow this pattern in your initial response. The goal is to present the information in such a way that each of you can make an expanded version of the chart in the book that would include these points.
Note: if your hormone is usually referred to by its initials, you must spell out its complete name the first time you use it in your response. After that, initials are OK.
LH in women AND men (sometimes called ICSH in men)
T4 and T3
Epinephrine and norepinephrine
