The amazing adrenal glands produce and release important hormones involved in the stress response of organisms. This includes adrenaline (epinephrine), glucocorticoids (cortisol), sex hormones (androgens), and mineralocorticoids (aldosterone).
In this episode we explore the anatomy and physiology of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. We describe the hormones produced by each and what they do! We also talk about certain diseases that can arise from having either too much or not enough of these hormones!
We talk about oxytocin, vasopressin (ADH), growth hormone, prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, and leutenizing hormone! So many!!!!
