The endocrine

  1. 1. ENDOCRINE GLANDS The Endocrine System | Bachelor in Political Science II-1
  2. 2. Definition of Terms • Glands - an organ in the human or animal body that secretes particular chemical substances for use in the body or for discharge into the surroundings. • Target cells - a cell that bears receptors for a hormone, drug, or other signaling molecule, or is the focus of contact by a virus, phagocyte, nerve fiber, etc. • Receptor - an organ or cell able to respond to light, heat, or other external stimulus and transmit a signal to a sensory nerve. • Corpus luteum - a hormone-secreting structure that develops in an ovary after an ovum has been discharged but degenerates after a few days unless pregnancy has begun. The Endocrine System | Bachelor in Political Science II-1
  3. 3. Definition of Terms • Spermatogenesis - the production or development of mature spermatozoa. • Ovarian follicles - a fluid-filled structure in the mammalian ovary within which an ovum develops before ovulation. • Biorhythms - a recurring cycle in the physiology or functioning of an organism, such as the daily cycle of sleeping and waking. The Endocrine System | Bachelor in Political Science II-1
