Cerebral Cortex is your brainâ€™s main Headquarter, which houses the Hypothalamus.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone. > LH (LH is the one primarily responsible for the Testosterone Production, and not FSH) then sends the signal to the Leydig Cells in the Testes (by converting Cholesterol to Testosterone) to produce more Testosterone > and more Testosterone is made to the personâ€™s maximum capability.
