 Source Target Actions Factors that tissue Stimulate Release Produced in Distal Increases Low fluid intake hypothalamus convoluted permeability of decreases blood -released by tubule and the collecting volume and posterior collecting ducts to water. receptors water excretion in hypothalamus stimulate posterior pituitary . ++ -. increases pituitary ducts increasing osmotic gland reabsorption pressure of and decreasing blood.

.

which stimulates pituitary to release antidiuretic hormone (ADH) .{ our blood will have a low water potential (becomes more concentrated) 2 his is detected by osmoreceptors in your hypothalamus.

^ he release of ADH into the bloodstream brings about the following: u ADH makes the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct more permeable to water u his allows more water to be reabsorbed from distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct into the region of high solute concentration in the medulla .

áhisproduces a smaller volume of more concentrated urine áInaddition to stimulating the release of ADH when the blood concentrated. the hypothalamus also activates your thirst centre in the brain .

you feel thirsty and take in additional water to dilute the blood áDrinking stops the stimulating of your thirst center almost immediately áhis is though to be due to the thirst centre responding to the stomach filling water .áAs a result.

.

{ our blood will have a high water potential (it become more dilute) 2 his is detected by the osmoreceptors in your hypothalamus and results in a decrease in the amount of ADH secreted by the pituitary .

^ he decrease in the amount of ADH in the bloodstream results in the following: á Lack ADH makes the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct less permeable to water á Less water is reabsorbed into the medulla á Larger quantities of dilute urine are produced .
