The goal of this paper is to present a hardware realization of the feed-forward and feedback hypothalamic-pituitary growth hormone (GH) secretion mechanism based on a bio-mathematical nonlinear delay differential equation model developed by Farhy et al. (2003) and Veldhuis et al. (2001). Behavioral modeling is implemented through Verilog hardware descriptive language (HDL) to simulate the antagonistic and stimulatory interaction of growth hormone, growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and… CONTINUE READING
