Cybernetic role of TSH in pituitary-thyroid feedback control
What is it about?
This review article on thyroid homeostasis summarizes theories of hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid interaction. It is based on principles of systems medicine, biological cybernetics and biochemistry. Special emphasis is laid on on thyrotropin and other thyroid stimulators. In addition, it summarizes the role of calculated structure parameters like SPINA-GT, SPINA-GD or Jostel's TSH index for evaluation of thyroid function.
Why is it important?
This is the first review article that summarizes efforts in mathematical and cybernetic modelling of thyroid homeostasis.
