Describe and give an example of each of the 3 classes of hormomes.
5 types from what I've read:
Acetylcholine - Acetylcholine
Neuropeptides - Substance P
Amino acids - GABA
Gasotransmitters - NO
Monoamines - Serotonin

Source? The 3 mentioned in the 2011 Division C Manual are steroids (+eicosanoids), (poly)peptides/proteins, and monoamines.

EDIT: I wouldn't classify most neurotransmitters as hormones (exceptions like epinephrine and norepinephrine exist). Note that I was asking about hormones.
