  • Hedonism Human Sexuality

    S01876886 UI317-01 Assignment #3: Reflections 1. Hormones and the brain are powerful influences on human sexual functioning. Perhaps two of the most important portions of the brain in terms of sexual functioning are the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, which make up the HPG axis. The HPG axis consists of the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and the gonads – gonads being the testes in males and the ovaries in females. Together, the HPG axis regulates sex hormone production in a negative feedback loop. Three important hormones that are produced from this process are follicle-stimulating (FSH) hormone; luteinizing hormone (LH); and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH.) These hormones help to regulate the pituitary gland’s production of…

  • Triptorelin Research Paper

    synthetic decapeptide hormone which falls under the gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist) utilized as the pamoates or acetate salts. GnRH is Triptorelin (GnRH) initiates persistent stimulation of the pituitary glands and therefore leads to a decline in the levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and gonatropins luteinizing hormone (LH) secreted by the pituitary gland. It achieves this function by over stimulating the body’s production of these hormones hence leading to a…

  • Oxytocin And Social Behavior

    A comparative study done by McGraw & Young (2010) used voles as subjects, because of their distinct social behavior. They showed that prairie vole pups, which are part of monogamous species, react to social isolation with ultrasonic calls as well as an increase in corticosterone level, which is a hormone involved in stress responses. On the other hand, montane vole pups, which are promiscuous species, did not respond to social isolation as a stressor, but on the contrary did produce ultrasonic…
