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!!!!

They explain how to remember their names! How to remember whether they are sensory, motor, or both! AND how to test them clinically!!
In this episode Dr. Matt and Dr. Mike introduce the nervous system. They outline the various components of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system (cranial nerves and spinal nerves) and discuss its primary functions.

The Glomerulus (meaning ball of yarn) is a capillary network in the kidneys that decides what gets filtered from the blood into urine.Our kidneys need to filter 120mL per minute (or 180L per day) of blood in order to maintain the appropriate amount of salts, pH, waste, and other components in the blood. If this membrane is damaged or disrupted, patient health can rapidly decline.
What is the glomerulus? How does it work? How can it be damaged? What are some diseases of the glomerulus?
Why is our poo brown? What is Jaundice and why do people with Jaundice turn yellow?
This episode has A LOT of information!!

How do we exchange gases with our blood? In this episode Dr Matt and Dr Mike examine how we bring gases into our lungs from the atmosphere and how we exchange gases with our blood.
