<ul><li> Slide 1 </li> <li> Endocrine System Mrs. Atchison Health Science I </li> <li> Slide 2 </li> <li> Function of endocrine system Endocrine glands - Secrete chemicals, hormones, directly into bloodstream. - Ductless glands Exocrine glands - Secrete substance through a duct i.e.Sweat, salivary, lacrimal and pancreas. Hormones = chemical substances that coordinate and direct target cells and organs. </li> <li> Slide 3 </li> <li> Negative Feedback Drop in hormone level triggers chain reaction: 1. Blood level of hormone falls 2. Brain gets message and sends out hormone to stimulate gland 3. Gland secretes more hormone 4. When blood levels of hormone increase, the brain hormones stop </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> Nervous Control In some cases, sympathetic nervous system causes direct release of hormone from gland i.e. stress may cause the adrenal medulla to secrete adrenaline </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> What is a gland?
