Pineal and Pancreas Glands
The endocrine system
Endocrine system is made out of 8 major glands, they’re group of cells that produce and secrete chemicals. Organs such as the kidney, liver, heart and the gonads help the Endocrine System. The kidney secretes hormones (erythropoietin and renin).Slide3
Pineal and Pancreas glandSlide4
Pancreas Gland- Location
The pancreas is located in the abdomen, behind the stomach and connected to the small intestineSlide5
Pineal Gland- Location
This gland is located behind the third cerebral ventricle in midline of the brain. Which is deep inside the brain.Slide6
pineal gland is a small gland that produces serotonin derivative melatonin, that hormone affects you wake/sleep functions.
Function- Pineal glandSlide7
The enzymes that are secreted by the exocrine gland helps break down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and acids that are found in the duodenum.-Made up of two glands: exocrine and endocrine.-The hormones that are secreted in the endocrine gland in the pancreas are glucagon, insulin, and somatostain.Slide8
Pineal Gland produces melatonin. Influences sleep/wake cycles. Sexual development Pancreas produces insulin and glucagon. Regulates levels of glucose in the bloodSlide9
regulates glucose levels in blood. Makes it possible for glucose to enter our body’s cells.Slide10
Glucagon is secreted by cells that are called “alpha” when the blood glucose is low. Whenever the blood glucose is high no glucagon is secreted. Glucose has more effect on the liver. Its function is to cause the liver to release glucose from the cells to the blood.Slide11
Pineal gland- Disorder Melatonin deficency
A deficient amount of melatonin is releasedSymptomsInsomnia AnxietyElevated estrogen/progesterone ratioSlide12
The pancreas is very much responsible for the secretion of insulin and glucose to control blood sugar, improper functioning can lead to
Symptoms of diabetes= Increased urination, Excessive thirst and appetite, unusual weight loss or gain.
(see video for diabetes)Slide13
Interesting facts ;)
The pancreas has taste receptors, just like our mouth does in order to detect sweetness. The pineal gland is cone shaped and it can also be called “the third eye”Slide14
