Introduction to the Endocrine System

by Carlo Raj, MD

Hormones are produced throughout the body by endocrine glands. The hypothalamus is the key regulator of many hormonal processes, producing either stimulatory or inhibitory hormones that act on the pituitary gland. Of the pituitary hormones, some may again act on other endocrine organs—the adrenal glands, gonads, thyroid, and parathyroid glands—while others act directly on their target organs. Many of these hormones are part of regulatory hormonal cascades involving a hypothalamic hormone, one or more pituitary hormones, and one or more target gland hormones. They are important to understand, as they regulate a large portion of human physiology.
