Abstract: The endocrine system consists of glands and tissues that produce and secrete hormones to regulate and coordinate vital bodily functions. This article, the second in an eight-part series on the endocrine system, explores the anatomy and physiology of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, and how they work together to regulate and coordinate vital physiological processes in the body through hormonal action. It shows how many of the actions initiated by the hypothalamus are mediated through hormonal secretions produced by the pituitary gland beneath it.
