Pituitary Gland
Thirst Centers in the Brain
Osmoreceptor Cells
Renal Tubule
A hormone secreted by the pituitary gland when it is stimulated by the hypothalamus.
ADH stands for antidiuretic hormone.
When the body is short on water, the hypothalamus stimulates the thirst center in the brain, then the pituitary gland.
Urea is formed in the Liver before it is transported in the blood to the kidneys.
Cleaning areas in the kidneys.
Each kidney has about a million nephron.
Each nephron has three structures: renal capsule, renal tubule, and the collecting duct.
Stimulated by the hypothalamus, to release the hormone ADH, when the body is short on water.
Formed in the liver from the breakdown of proteins that our body doesn't require.
Urea is a nitrogen compound.
It is toxic to our body.
A bundle of capillaries.
These can be found in the center part of the renal capsule.

One of the three structures of a nephron.
Its inner end is connected to the renal capsule and it outer end is connected to the collecting duct which leads to the ureter.
