Video: The Endocrine System

Video: The Endocrine System

Internal control of the body is directed by two systems: 1, The Nervous System and 2, The Endocrine System. In this lecture, I discuss the endocrine system and how endocrine glands control functions in the body through the release of hormones. The pituitary gland is known as the Master Endocrine Gland and plays a major role in controlling the other glands of the endocrine system.

I illustrate HOW the endocrine system by giving specific examples such as insulin and Human Growth Hormone’s role in regulating blood sugar, and adrenaline’s role in preparing the body for stressful situations. Enjoy!

This is section 35.1 in the textbook Biology: The Dynamics of Life and is part of the chapter on The Digestive and Endocrine Systems.

Outline:

  • The Vital Nutrients
  • Calories and Metabolism

I wish that you went into more detail information. Like the names of the adrenal glands, and different disease that occur when hypo/hyper. Over all good video.

Thank you for this, was a great help for my revision. Have you ever thought of teaching in the UK? The university of Lincoln would benefit from a lecturer with your approach!

Hi, wonderful video. However, I believe near the end of the video, you switched the functions of Calcitonin and PTH. Can you please check it?

I don't remember what I said at the end of the video, but you can do some research to find out which is correct. Just do a google search!
