1.   The anterior pituitary is composed of __________ tissue.  Name the six classic hormones whose functions are well known.   a.   b.   c.   d.   e.   f.

The anterior pituitary is composed of epithelial tissue and five major cell types including corticotropes, thyrotropes, gonadotropes, somatotropes and lactotropes.
2.   TRH, GNRH, CRH etc. are known as ____________ hypothalamic hormones which regulate the function of the _________ pituitary.  These hormones are released into capillary beds and carried directly to the pituitary by the __________ ________  ________ located in the __________________.

This is difficult! I know that all of these are released into the blood, and travel immediately to the anterior lobe of the pituitary, where they exert their effects. All of them are released in periodic spurts.

This topic is NOT solved, the answers are wrong. It lists cell type not classic hormones from anterior pituitary.
 Here they are:
a.Growth Hormone
b. TSH, thyroid-stimulating hormone
c.ACH, adrenocorticotropic hormone
d. Prolactin
e. Lutenizing hormone
f.FSH, follicle-stimulating hormone
