Unformatted text preview: Endocrine System Overview of Endocrine Glands Human Anatomy and Physiology II Department of Kinesiology Temple University Integration and Coordination Accomplished by Nervous and Endocrine Referred to as Neuroendocrine System Work as Complements Maintain Homeostasis! Negative Feedback Mechanisms Stimulation increases secretion Secretion increases blood concentration Target organ affected Hormone release inhibited Nervous vs. Endocrine Nervous Electrochemical Very fast (110 ms) Only muscles/glands Ends quickly May stimulate hormone release Endocrine Chemical Slow (secs to days) Most tissues in body Continues for days? Stimulate and inhibit neurons Overview of Endocrinology Endo "within" Crine krinein "to separate" Major role in: secrete products to distant tissues Growth and Development Reproduction Total Body Metabolism Characteristics of ES Endocrine Paracrine Neurosecretory cells Secrete hormones into bloodstream Stimulates response in target tissue/organ "Local" hormones Secrete into tissue fluids to nearby cells tubes or ducts affect itself Exocrine Autocrine Transportation of Hormones Endocrine glands are highly vascularized Hormones is Released into ECF via exocytosis Hormones travel in blood vessels Transported to target organ Major Endocrine Organs Hypothalamus and Pituitary Closely integrated relationship Hypothalamus major link b/w NS and ES Pituitary "master" endocrine gland Regulation of growth Development Metabolism Homeostasis Hormones control pituitary Together, 16 different hormones Hypothalmus and Pituitary Hypothalamichypophyseal tract Hypophyseal portal system Nerve tract connecting to posterior pituitary Vascular connection to anterior pituitary Primary capillary plexus Hypophyseal portal vein Secondary capillary plexus Hypothalamus Derived from neural tissue Part of diencephalon of cerebrum Hormones produced Paraventricular nucleus Supraoptic nucleus Hypothalamic Hormones 9 different hormones Median Eminence to Anterior Pituitary Growth hormonereleasing hormone (GHRH) Growth hormoneinhibiting hormone (GHIH) Corticotropinreleasing hormone (CRH) Thyrotropinreleasing hormone (TRH) thyr.
