The question really is about the physiology of the pituitary gland. Physiology is a word that physicians use that means the function of something. So what does it do? Not just where it is. So pituitary, its function is, it’s called the master gland. It’s ultimately controlled by something that sits on top of it, called the hypothalamus, which is really pulling the strings of the pituitary. And then the pituitary secretes these hormones that then go through the whole body. And the pituitary has several hormones and they’re sort of separated into two parts of the pituitary. And the pituitary has this front part, which we call the anterior pituitary. And this back part that we call the posterior pituitary.
