In my 2-Minute Neuroscience videos I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this video I cover the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. I discuss the role the hypothalamus plays in maintaining homeostasis and how it manipulates hormone release from the pituitary gland to accomplish this. I also discuss the anterior and posterior lobes of the pituitary gland, along with the most common hormones secreted from each lobe.
