  • 11. 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
  • 12. Endocrine System
    Hypothalamus
