    Permissive = A does not have a direct effect, but augments the effects of B

    Synergism = A has an effect, B has an effect; and when combined, the sum of the effects exceeds the additive sum of the individual effects.

    What exactly is the effects of Thyroxine PERMISSIVE or SYNERGISTIC to Growth Hormone in terms of bone growth? (IE, does thyroxine have a direct effect on bone growth?)

    Thanks in advance :love:

    I've read it's specifically permissive, but this is Kaplan and you never know with what they say...
