Flashcards in Mnemonics Deck (32):
1

  • Sperm look like "FiSH"

  • FSH in males
    • stimulates spermatogenesis
  • LSH in females
    • stimulates ovarian follicles

2

  • Leutenizing Hormone (LH) secretes
    • "Like Hairy Apes?"

  • LH (in males) secretes androgens
    • Note: Androgens:
      • stimulates or controls the development and maintenance of male characteristics in vertebrates
      • This includes the activity of the accessory male sex organs and development of male secondary sex characteristics
