Transcript

  • 1. Endocrine System: Endocrinology: science of studying endocrine glands and diagnosing/treating disorders of endocrine system Endocrine Glands: secrete products (hormones) into the blood (not through ducts like exocrine glands) Endocrine Gland Anatomy: (worksheet)
  • 2. <ul><li>Nervous and Endocrine systems coordinate functions of all body systems </li></ul><ul><li>- nerve impulses are more rapid in producing results than hormones </li></ul><ul><li>- effects of nervous system are brief while those of hormones last longer </li></ul>
  • 3. <ul><li>Functions of Hormones: </li></ul><ul><li>1. regulate metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>2. regulate smooth and cardiac muscle contraction </li></ul><ul><li>3. integrate growth and development </li></ul><ul><li>4. maintain homeostasis during emergency disruptions </li></ul><ul><li>5. contribute to basic processes of reproduction </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>Hormones only affect specific target cells that have receptors for that specific hormone </li></ul><ul><li>Circulating Hormones: act on distant target cells </li></ul><ul><li>Local Hormones: act on target cells close to the release site or the cell that secretes it </li></ul><ul><li>Typically, hormonal actions are negative feedback. Exceptions: Oxytocin and Luteinizing Hormone </li></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>Disorders: </li></ul><ul><li>Hyposecretion: </li></ul><ul><li>too little of hormone produced </li></ul><ul><li>Hypersecretion: </li></ul><ul><li>too much of hormone produced </li></ul>
  • 6. PITUITARY GLAND HGH – human growth hormone TSH – thyroid stimulating hormone ACTH – adreno-cortico tropic hormone FSH – follicle stimulating homrone LH – luteinizing hormone ICSH – interstitual cell stimulating hormone PRL - prolactin MSH – melanocyte stimulating hormone OT - oxytocin ADH – antidiuretic hormone
  • 7. HGH: - growth of body cells - elevates blood glucose levels Hyposecretion: dwarfism: -slow body growth
