0

If the metabolic rate is lowered what is the receptor?

The hypothalamus detects metabolic rate. Secretes TSH releasing factors to the anterior pituitary.

1

What is the modulator if the metabolic rate is lowered?

In response to TSH releasing factors the anterior pituitary secretes TSH.

2

What is the effector in the control of the metabolic rate when the metabolic rate has been lowered?

The thyroid gland detects TSH and secretes thyroxine.

3

What is the response increased thyroxine causes?

Thyroxine causes most body cells to increase cellular respiration.

4

When the metabolic rate increases the receptor is?

The hypothalamus detecting metabolic rate & secreting less TSH releasing factors to the anterior pituitary.

5

What is the modulator if the metabolic rate increases?

In response to TSH releasing factors the anterior pituitary secretes less TSH.

6

What is the effector in the feedback loop for a increased metabolism?

The thyroid gland detects lower TSH and secretes less thyroxine.

7

What does lower Thyroxin cause when an increased metabolic rate occurs?

Lower thyroxin causes most body cells to decrease cellular respiration.
