A detailed description of the neurohypophysis and its hormones is provided by Turner and Bagnara (1976), Hadley (1992) and Bennett and Whitehead (1983). 1). This section provides a brief outline of the functions of these PITUITARY HORMONES hormones. More detailed descriptions of the hormones of the pars distalis are given by Turner and Bagnara (1976), Hadley (1992), and Martin (1985).
