Transcript: It tells the pituitary gland when to release hormones. The hypothalamus also helps our body maintain a constant temperature. It secretes the hormone which is necessary for normal bone growth. It is located in the middle of the brain. It helps regulate the circadian rhythm (wake – sleep cycle also called the internal clock) Ovaries Glands A gland in the upper chest that helps develop the body's immune system early in life. It is located in the lower abdomen of females. It leads to the development of secondary female characteristics. It controls maturation and reproduction. This gland is located outside of the body of males. It controls maturation and development of secondary male characteristics. It secretes the hormone which controls voice change and facial hair growth and other body changes. This gland is located near the voice box. It controls metabolism and weight It secretes the hormone thyroxine which controls the rate at which your body burns and uses energy. Fun Facts Fun Facts Located in brain but is the size of a Pea This gland is located in the neck attached to the thyroid gland. It is group of four glands. It controls the calcium and phosphorus levels in your body. Testes Fun Facts Endocrine System A system of glands which control our body This gland is located near your liver. It helps control the amount of sugar in your body. It secretes the hormone insulin which controls the level of sugar/glucose in your body. It controls the rate at which your heart beats and your breathing due to being frightened or nervous. Fun Facts Parathyroid Gland Pineal Body Pancrease Fun Facts This gland is located at the top of your kidneys. It secretes a hormone adrenaline which increases your heartbeat and breathing when you are frightened or nervous. One of the other hormones produced by adrenal gland influence or regulate salt and water balance in the body. It's shaped like butterfly Pituitary Hypothalamus Pineal Body Thymus Reproductive Thyroid Parathroid Pancreas Adrenal Fun Facts Thyroid Gland Thymus Known as the master gland Produces growth hormones Controls other body glands and processes It is the primary link between the endocrine and nervous system Adrenal Produces hormones in absence of light Pituitary Hypothalamus


Transcript: Function Secretes an oily/waxy matter called sebum. Found in hair-covered areas. Also found in non-haired areas: eyelids, nose, penis, labia minora and nipples. Protect and waterproofs hair and skin . When sebum is produced in excess, it may cause skin disorders such as acne. Sebaceous glands cover the surface of your entire body except the palms, soles and dorsum of the feet. Pamela Larrazolo Brenda Arzola Efren Villalobos Julian Corral Simple sweat glands that are located in the inner ear canal. Produce earwax, by mixing their secretion with sebum and dead epidermal cells Coats the canal with earwax, making them sticky to fight bacteria and for protection. Apocrine Gland Found only in certain locations: armpits, nipples, ear canal, eyelids, etc. Located at junction of dermis and subcutaneous fat. It is fatty and has the potential to be quite odiferous. Glands Ceruminous Gland Fun Fact Fun Facts Function Sebaceous Gland Fun Facts Example Found in all of parts skin. Produces sweat. Active in thermoregulation and emotional sweating. Located deep in the dermis and hypodermis. Excess cerumen can harden and cause blockage in the ear, resulting in loss of hearing. Protects the skin of the ear canal from dehydration. Example Sweat Glands Function Eccrine Gland An average person has 2.6 million sweat glands Yellow underarm stains are caused by apocrine glands. Swedish engineers have built a "sweat machine" that pulls the sweat out of damp clothing, & then purifies & filters it until it's fit to drink. Function

They may also handle employee relations, payroll, benefits, and training. Human resources managers plan, direct and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization. Description Description Human resources specialists are responsible for recruiting, screening, interviewing and placing workers. They may also handle employee relations, payroll, benefits, and training. Human resources managers plan, direct and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization. Duties Duties Subtopic 1 you need good communication skills PICTURES The human resources department handles a range of different functions within an organization. The department is responsible for hiring and firing employees, training workers, maintaining interoffice relationships and interpreting employment laws. function Function TIMELINE 2018 MAP Location 2 Location 3 Location 1 Definitely collaborative and good relations should exist between HR and other Departments. HR, as you say, is responsible for a number of areas, but decisions are usually in conjunction with other functions. HR may have established policies and programs, but generally there would have been discussion and executive approval and areas like recruitment and compensation would have a great deal of functional management input whether in final selection of a candidate or job evaluation and performance management which usually impact on compensation. HR, Interactions with other departments interactions


Transcript: Action: The hypothalamus is involved in many functions of the autonomic nervous system, as it receives information from nearly all parts of the nervous system. As such, it is considered the link between the nervous system and the endocrine system Disease: A physical injury to the head that impacts the hypothalamus is one of the most common causes of hypothalamic disease. Location: The pituitary gland is only about 1/3 of an inch in diameter (that’s about as large as a pea) and located at the base of the brain. Hormones: Anterior Lobe Hormones: Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) Growth hormone (GH) Luteinizing hormone (LH) Prolactin Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) Posterior Lobe Hormones: Anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) Oxytocin Endocrine System Location: The thyroid gland is the biggest gland in the neck. It is situated in the anterior (front) neck below the skin and muscle layers. Hormones: The thyroid gland produces thyroxine which is a prohormone and smaller amounts of triiodothyronine, the active hormone. Target: The thyroid gland produces hormones which regulate the body’s metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development and bone maintenance. Pancreas Gland Action: breaking down the bone (where most of the body's calcium is stored) and causing calcium release increasing the body's ability to absorb calcium from food increasing the kidney's ability to hold on to calcium that would otherwise be lost in the urine. Disease: Hypothyroidism, Subacute thyroiditis, Toxic adenomas Adrenal glands Ovaries Target: Reproduction Action: Once the sperm are produced in the seminiferous tubules they pass into the epididymis, a long coiled tube in which sperm mature as they are conveyed along it. They are then ready to be released at ejaculation via the vas deferens. Disease:Infertility, Testicular Cancer, Cryptorchidism Location: Below the Thalamus, above the brainstem Hormone: produces releasing and inhibiting hormones, which stop and start the production of other hormones throughout the body. Target Function: It is responsible for maintaining your body’s internal balance, which is known as homeostasis Glands Pituitary Gland Pancreas gland The adrenal glands are two glands that sit on top of your kidneys that are made up of two distinct parts Location: The adrenal glands are two, triangular-shaped organs that measure about 1.5 inches in height and 3 inches in length. They are located on top of each kidney Hormone: glucocorticoids and mineralcorticoids. Pituitary Gland Location: The testes, also known as testicles or male gonads, lie behind the penis in a pouch of skin called the scrotum. Hormone: Testosterone Parathyroid glands The Endocrine System is made up of 9 major glands that help produce hormones. Location: The body has four parathyroid glands that are located just behind the thyroid gland. Hormone: Parathyroid Hormone Target: The main target organs where parathyroid hormone exerts its effects are the bones, kidneys and gut to balance calcium concentration in the blood Hypothalamus Gland Thyroid gland Location:They are oval in shape, about four centimeters long and lie on either side of the womb (uterus) against the wall of the pelvis in a region known as the ovarian fossa Hormones: oestrogen and progesterone Target: Reproduce Action:Menstrual cycle, ovulation Disease: Ovarian Cysts, Premature Ovarian Failure Adrenal Gland Testes Target:to help control your circadian (or biological) rhythm and regulate certain reproductive hormones Action: Helps control circadian rhythms Disease:Tumors Thyroid gland Target: The adrenal cortex—the outer part of the gland—produces hormones that are vital to life, such as cortisol (which helps regulate metabolism and helps your body respond to stress) and aldosterone (which helps control blood pressure). Action: But the adrenal glands contribute to your health even at times when your body isn’t under extreme stress. In fact, they release hormones that are essential for you to live. Disease: Adrenal Cancer, Parathyroid Glands Hypothalamus Pituitary Thyroid Parathyroids Adrenals Pineal Ovaries Testes Pancreas Target Function: The pituitary gland is often dubbed the “master gland” because its hormones control other parts of the endocrine system, namely the thyroid gland, adrenal glands, ovaries, and testes. Action: The pituitary gland is immensely important to the overall function of your endocrine system—and to your overall health. By working with the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland ensures that all your body’s internal processes work as they should.. Diseases: Tumors, hormonal imbalances, Pituitary Apopolexy Location: Upper Abdomen Hormone: insulin, glucagon Target: a digestive exocrine gland and a hormone-producing endocrine gland. The pineal gland was once dubbed the “third eye,” which originated for many reasons, ranging from its location deep in the center of the brain to its connection to light.


Transcript: Glands Eccrine Sweat Glands! On that note, the purpose of these glands is to excrete various liquid wastes, and, more importantly, to help regulate body temperature and maintain a homeostatic state (sweat sits on the skin, air hits sweaty skin and the water evaporates, skin is cooled). Sweat glands are located within the Dermis, all over the body. Sebaceous (Oil) Glands! Hair Follicle: Base of the hair root; supports hair and plants it into skin. Sebaceous (oil) gland: A gland of the body that produces a substance that keeps hairs in their follicles, and even some surrounding skin, from becoming brittle and dry. Sebum: This is the substance produced in and pushed out of the sebaceous glands. It is mostly made up of a complex mixture of lipids (fats). While sebum can reduce dryness in skin and hair, it can also fight off bacteria that lands on the skin and even some that seep through the pores. Purpose and Location: Sebaceous glands are, like Eccrine sweat glands, located all throughout the surface of the skin, with the exception of on the palms of the feet and hands. How Acne Works... The End! 1) Epidermis Hair Follicle (Sebum flows into Hair Follicle) -Blood Vessels -Hair Follicles Studies Thus far... (Dermis) Dermal Duct- A small tubule within the skin. In this case it is a little tube that squishes sweat up to the surface of the skin. Coiled Gland- This is the actual powerhouse/production site of the Sweat Gland. This is where sweat is formed. Extra tidbit: Sweat is mostly composed of water and salt, but also contains many wastes which urine also carries, such as lactic acid. of the Dermis 2) Dermis Coiled Gland What does skin have in it? -The Integumentary System -(Skin.) 3) Hypodermis -3 layers: (Dermis, Connective Fibers) Inside the Dermis: (Hypodermis) Dermal Duct Sebaceous Gland -Glands!
