specialized cells
Specialized Cells
  • These include:
    • Pinealocytes
    • Thyroid Epithelial Cells
    • Parathyroid Chief Cells
    • Adrenal Gland Cells
  • These specialized cells make up glands.
  • The major glands that make up the human endocrine system include the:
    • Hypothalamus
    • Pituitary Gland
    • Thyroid
    • Parathyroids
    • Adrenal Glands
    • Pineal Body
    • Pancreas
    • Reproductive Glands (which include the ovaries and testes)
  • These glands communicate with parts of your body with chemical messages or hormones
  • Different glands communicate with different parts of the body
the endocrine and the reproductive system
The Endocrine and The Reproductive System
  • The Endocrine System works with the Reproductive System
  • The Reproductive System’s function is to create copies of ourselves and hormones in the Endocrine System give that system directions to get the human body ready to do that
  • Testosterone is the main male sex hormone that is produced by the testes beginning in the fetus' eighth week.
  • In the fetal and embryonic stages of development, testosterone promotes the development of the penis and scrotum and the formation of the structures involved in sperm production.
  • In the pubescent years (age 9 to 14), testosterone helps in the growth of the testes, body hair, muscles and bones as well as sexual maturation and deepening of the voice
  • For teenage boys, the production of testosterone increases 10X –this can contribute to fluctuations in mood
  • Women also produce testosterone
estrogen and progesterone
Estrogen and Progesterone
  • Ovaries produce both estrone, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone
  • Breasts produce estrogen
  • During puberty, this messaging system triggers an ovulation cycle where an egg is released to be fertilized and start reproduction.
  • Fluctuations or inbalance in these hormones can cause mood changes
