Summary Introduction

To match: Each pituitary hormone with its target.

Explanation

Antidiuretic hormone: c. kidney

Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) is also known as vasopressin. It is a hormone that is produced in the hypothalamus region of the brain and stored in the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. ADH stimulates kidney and helps in maintaining the water level in the body.

Oxytocin: b. mammary gland

Oxytocin is a peptide hormone that is produced in the hypothalamus region of the brain and stored in the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. Neurons present in the hypothalamus give electrical signals to release oxytocin into the blood. Oxytocin acts on the mammary gland and helps in lactation (to secrete milk) and contracting the uterus during child birth.
