Garfield has a funny bone that releases a funny bone hormone
into the blood when the wind blows and causes Garfield to have an
increased appetite for pizza. The funny bone hormone also
participates in the regulation of bone growth indirectly through
modulating the secretion of other hormones. What would these funny
bone hormone effects be?
a) Stimulation of somatostatin release.
b) Stimulation of somatocrinin/somatoliberin release.
c) Inhibition of hypothalamic dopamine release.
d) Stimulation of thyrotropin-releasing hormone secretion.
e) Inhibition of gastrin secretion.
f) Stimulation of ghrelin release.
g) Stimulation of secretin release.

b.- Somatocrenin/ somatolinerin also known as growth hormone are responsible for the growth and development of bone. They do this secretion of somatomedin from liver. It acts indirectly and increases the growth.
c- Dopamine is released from hypothalamus and acts as neurotransmitter. It supressses appetite and aids in weight loss. Therefore as given in above question, hunger is stimulated so there is inhibition of dopamine release.
d- Thyroid releasing hormone is released from hypothalamus which stimulates the release of thyroid stimulating hormone which causes thyroid to affect bone growth directly or indirectly.
f.- ghrelin is also known as hunger hormone. It is released in response to hunger and increases appetite.
