The hypothalamus is a part of the brain located superior and anterior to the brain stem and inferior to the thalamus. It serves many different functions in the nervous system, and is also responsible for the direct control of the endocrine system through the pituitary gland. The hypothalamus contains special cells called neurosecretory cells neurons that secrete hormones: Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) Growth hormone-releasing hormone (G

The endocrine system is composed of a network of organs and glands responsible for producing, storing, and secreting hormones that help to maintain and control vital functions such as growth, reproduction, and energy levels. There are several endocrine system diseases that result from disruptions in this complex system: Diabetes - One of the more prevalent endocrine system diseases, diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce

Poultryhub: Endocrine System

The endocrine system consists of a number of organs (glands) located in different areas of the body which play an important part in the proper functioning of the animal. The organs produce special compounds called hormones, which, in turn, target particular systems or organs, and the way that they function. These glands are called endocrine glands because they do not have an opening to discharge their secretions but discharge them directly into t

The endocrine system is made up of glands that produce and secrete hormones, chemical substances produced in the body that regulate the activity of cells or organs. These hormones regulate the body's growth, metabolism (the physical and chemical processes of the body), and sexual development and function. The hormones are released into the bloodstream and may affect one or several organs throughout the body.
