  • Red- pituitary Orange- hypothalamus Violet-infundibulum
  • Hypothalamus

    1. 1. ENDOCRINE SYSTEM<br />
    2. 2. DEFINITION<br />Ductless gland<br />Exerts chemical control over the human body<br />Maintains homeostasis<br />Acts with nervous system to coordinate the body's activities<br />Uses chemical messengers called hormones that are transported by the circulatory system (blood)<br />
    3. 3. HORMONES<br />AMINO ACIDS- simplest form<br />- epinephrine and norepinephrine, oxytocin and vasopressin<br />PROTEIN HORMONES – insulin and gonad<br />STEROID HORMONES- lipids<br />-cortisol, estrogen and testosterone <br />
    4. 4.
    5. 5. NEGATIVE FEEDBACK<br />Chemical control of the body functions <br />When the concentrations of a particular hormone reaches a certain level in the body, the endocrine gland that secreted that hormone is inhibited (the negative feedback) <br />The secretion of that hormone decreases significantly<br />
    6. 6. HYPOTHALAMUS<br />
    7. 7. DEFINITION<br />Inferior part of the diencephalon <br />*DIENCEPHALON- one of the major parts of the brain containing the thalamus and hypothalamus<br /> Control center of all autonomic regulatory activities of the body<br />
    8. 8. Functions:<br />Main function is homeostasis<br />*HOMEOSTASIS - maintaining the body’s internal environment<br />Plays a major role in controlling the secretions from the pituitary gland<br /> * INFUNDIBULUM – connects the floor of the hypothalamus to the pituitary gland<br /> Sends neural and chemical signals to the pituitary gland<br />

    13. 13. CHEMICAL SIGNALS<br />Releasing Hormones<br /><ul><li>Main purpose is to control the release of another hormone
    14. 14. Stimulates the release of hormones
    15. 15. Capillary bed, portal vein, receptors</li></ul>Inhibitory Hormones<br /><ul><li>Inhibits release of hormones from another structure
    16. 16. convey the hormones through the pituitary stalk into the anterior pituitary</li></li></ul><li>RELEASING HORMONES<br />Thyrotropin-releasing hormone<br /><ul><li> Stimulates the secretion of thyroid-stimulating hormone from the pituitary
    17. 17. Secretion of another pituitary hormone called prolactin
    18. 18. Involved in the control of body temperature</li></li></ul><li>RELEASING HORMONES<br />Gonadotropin-releasing hormone<br /><ul><li>Stimulates the synthesis and release of the two pituitary gonadotropins
    19. 19. Luteinizing hormone (LH)
    20. 20. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
    21. 21. Stimulates ovulation in the female ovary
    22. 22. Stimulates synthesis of testosterone to maintain sperm cell production </li></li></ul><li>RELEASING HORMONES<br />Adrenocorticotropic hormone<br /><ul><li>Stimulates the adrenal cortex to secrete the hormone, cortisol
    23. 23. Growth hormone-releasing hormone
    24. 24. Stimulates cell metabolism in most tissues of the body causing cells to divide and increase in size
    25. 25. Stimulates growth of bones and muscles</li></li></ul><li>RELEASING HORMONES<br /><ul><li>Oxytocin
    26. 26. Contraction of smooth muscles in the wall of the uterus</li></li></ul><li>Vasopressin<br /><ul><li> Controls the reabsorption of molecules in the tubules of the kidneys by affecting the tissue's permeability</li></li></ul><li>INHIBITING HORMONES<br />Growth hormone inhibiting hormone (GIH)<br /><ul><li>Also known as Somatostatin</li></ul>Prolactin release inhibiting hormone (PIH)<br /><ul><li>also known as Dopamine</li></li></ul><li>
