Lab 28B: Endocrine System Physiology
The endocrine system is the second greatest control system of the body and has many effects on the tissues and organs. The thyroid gland, which is a part of the endocrine system, releases a hormone that maintains metabol...

Endocrine System Physiology
Hormones & Metabolism
A normal rat's MR(metabolic rate) is normal or faster than the thyroidectomized or hypophysectomized because it produces thyroxine normally.
A thyroidectomized rat's MR goes down because there is no thyroid to produce thyroxine.

Activity 1: Determining Baseline Metabolic Rates
The Endocrine System
Controls many body functions
~exerts control by releasing special chemical substances into the blood called hormones
~Hormones affect other endocrine glands or body systems
Derives its name from the fact that various glands release hormones directly into the blood, which in...

Overview of the Endocrine System
* System of ductless glands that secrete hormones
* Hormones are “messenger molecules”
* Circulate in the blood
* Act on distant target cells
* Target cells respond to the hormones for which they have receptors...
Human Endocrine System
A system of glands and cells that make hormones that are released directly into the blood and travel to tissues and organs all over the body. The endocrine system controls growth, sexual development, sleep, hunger, and the way the body uses food.

The endocrine system helps regulate and maintain various body functions by synthesizing (making) and releasing hormones, chemical messengers.
The endocrine system is composed of glands that release their hormones directly into the bloodstream for chemical signaling of target cells...

The endocrine system is a control system of ductless glands that secrete chemical "instant messengers" called hormones that circulate within the body via the bloodstream to affect distant cells within specific organs. Endocrine glands secrete their products immediately into the blood or interstitial...
