posterior pituitary gland
What does the hypothalamus do then? Is it in charge of maintaining the body’s temperature

Title
The hypothalamus in the brain has osmoreceptors which detect the level of water in the blood plasma as a stimulus . If the level of water is too low, this causes the hypothalamus to send a signal to the pituitary gland , to release the anti-diuretic hormone or ADH


How does the pituitary gland and ADH reduce water loss.......
An interaction between the pituitary gland and the kidneys provides another mechanism. When the body is low in water, the pituitary gland secretes vasopressin (also called antidiuretic hormone) into the bloodstream. Vasopressin stimulates the kidneys to conserve water and excrete less urine.

Ok so if a question asked to describe how the body reacts when water content is low in the body and I wrote that the hypothalamus detected the change and releases more ADH, would I gain or lose a mark?

If this is for GCSE/A-level, the specific terminology and marking points you should have in your answer can be found either in your exam board specification or a mark scheme online.

As post #7 said check information on your exam board specification on regarding marking is done if it's for school exam

I'm a NHS registered ( nurse ) midwife and my flatmate is a specialist nurse in renal ( kidneys ) so hopefully you won't lose anything if answer is right...
