What Controls the Pituitary Gland?

The pituitary gland is controlled by the hypothalamus. Releasing hormones such as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) stimulate the secretion of pituitary hormones- gonadotropins (LH and FSH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), respectively. Whereas hormones somatostatin inhibit the secretion of growth hormone (GH).
