    • AP Psychology
      The Limbic System, Endocrine System and genetics
    • The Emotional Brain
      • Structures lying deep within the cerebral hemispheres.
      • Coordinates behaviors needed to satisfy motivational and emotional urges arising in the hypothalamus.
      • Also involved in memory
      Limbic System

    • Set of glands that regulate the flow or hormones into the bloodstream
      Relatively slow communication system
      Interconnected with the nervous system
      Pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries, testes
      Endocrine System
    • Endocrine System
      Hypothalamus
      Pituitary
      Thyroid
      Adrenal cortex
      Adrenal medulla
      Pancreas
      Ovaries (female)
      Testes (male)
    • Endocrine
      Hypothalamus
      Controls the pituitary gland
    • Endocrine
      Pituitary
      • Regulates growth
      • Controls thyroid, ovaries or testes, pancreas, and adrenal cortex
      • Regulates water and salt metabolism
      • The “master gland”
    • Endocrine
      Thyroid
      Controls the metabolic rate
    • Endocrine
      Adrenal Cortex
      • Regulates carbohydrate and salt metabolism
      • Controls inflammatory response
    • Endocrine
      Adrenal Medulla
      • Prepares the body for action
      • Secretes stress hormones
    • Endocrine
      Pancreas
      • Controls levels of insulin and glucagon
      • Regulates sugar metabolism
    • Endocrine
      Ovaries (female)
      Affect physical development, reproductive organs, and sexual behavior
    • Endocrine
      Testes (male)
      Affect physical development, reproductive organs, and sexual behavior
