Description:

The endocrine system is a complex network of ductless glands that secrete hormones into the circulatory system in order to maintain the delicate hormonal balance that is needed for good health. Within the body, hormones act as chemical messengers, constantly regulating physiological functions and relaying information between the different organs and tissues of the endocrine system and of other parts of the body.

This learning program takes a top-down approach to the examination of the endocrine system, beginning with the hypothalamus and ending with the gonads. As you navigate through the program, you will learn about the anatomy of the different endocrine organs. In addition, you will learn about the specialized cells of the endocrine system.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Describe the general function of the endocrine system.
  • Identify the different organs of the endocrine system.
  • List the major hormones of the endocrine system.
