By: Teniya ,Joey, Counrty

list of the functions- pineal gland, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, pancreas, adrenal glands, ovaries, testes.

The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.

Identify the major organs and the their functions

major organs in the endocrine system- pituitary/thyroid/parathyroids/adrenals/pineal body/pancreas

function of the pituitary- is a pea-sized gland at the base of the brain and is attached by fibers, this controls other glands as well as body functions.

function of the thyroid- covers the windpipe on 3 sides, it helps produce and regenerate adrenaline,epinephrine, and dopamine

function of the parathyroids- regulates calcium levels

function of the adrenals- produces hormones that are vital to life

function of the pineal body- it produces melatonin,located deep in the brain, once known as the third eye

function of the pancreas- releases into the bloodstream

Describe the basic structure of at least one major organ in assigned body system


This gland is about the size of a pea. It is located at the brain's base just under the hypothalamus. It is considered the king of the endocrine system. The pituitary is two parts: the posterior lobe and the anterior lobe. The anterior lobe regulates adrenal, thyroid and reproductive gland activity. It also produces a variety of hormones, such as prolactin, corticotropin, growth hormone and thyrotropin.The posterior lobe releases the antidiuretic hormone and this is responsible for controlling water balance in the body.
