  1. 1. Endocrine GlandsEndocrine Glands
  2. 2. Endocrine GlandsEndocrine Glands The endocrine system includes all of the glands of the body and the hormones produced by those glands. The glands are controlled directly by stimulation from the nervous system as well as by chemical receptors in the blood and hormones produced by other glands.
  3. 3. Endocrine GlandsEndocrine Glands  Pituitary GlandPituitary Gland  Adrenal GlandAdrenal Gland  Thyroid GlandThyroid Gland  Parathyroid GlandParathyroid Gland  Pineal GlandPineal Gland  PancreasPancreas  Adrenal GlandAdrenal Gland  Gonads GlandGonads Gland  Thymus GlandThymus Gland
