Transcript of Endocrine System
Adrenal cortex: produces cortisol (used to regulate the metabolism and stress) and aldosterone (controls blood pressure.)
Adrenal Medulla: responsible for producing hormones that aren’t essential to life such as adrenaline (aid in the reaction to stress.)
Link between nervous system and endocrine system.
Maintains homeostasis and stimulates key processes in the body
Ex. Body temperature, heart rate, sleep cycles
Produces hormones that start and stop the production of other hormones in the body
Known as “The Master Gland” for controlling other functions of the endocrine system.
Ultimately controlled by the hypothalamus via signals that instruct it to release or retain hormones.
Hormones made by the pituitary gland instructs other glands to stop or start hormone production.
After puberty this gland is no longer active
The thymus creates the hormone Thymosin
Thymosin controls the development of T cells
Hormones of the pancrea include insulin and glucagon
Both hormones control blood sugar levels
Enable female reproduction
Produces estrogen and progesterone
Enable male reproduction
Secretes testosterone necessary for physical development in males
Testosterone controls libido, muscle strength and bone density in adulthood
Produces melatonin, which regulates circadian rhythm (involves sleep) and regulate reproductive hormones
Two main thyroid hormones include T3 and T4
There are four parathyroid glands about the size of a grain of rice
Secretes parathyroid hormone (PTH)
Regulates the body’s calcium levels
