The endocrine system includes of specific tissues and glands which secrete chemical messengers to the body called hormones. The glands are aided by the nervous system and chemical receptors in the blood and other hormones produced by other glands. Hormones regulate many functions of the body such as cellular metabolism, reproduction, sugar and mineral homeostasis and digestion.
The nervous system uses sensory receptors, nerves and your brain to control your cells, and acts quickly. The endocrine system uses your circulatory system and hormones to care for your cells and acts more slowly. The reproductive system and endocrine systems use hormones to function. The nervous and endocrine systems
The nervous and endocrine systems are what control most of the body. The nervous system includes the brain, spinal, cord and nerves. The endocrine system consists of various hormonal glands such as the pituitary. These two systems interact closely since they both have a part in controlling
The endocrine system is the system of the body in which releases hormones into the bloodstream. The hormones then cause different reactions within the body, and these reactions shape
The endocrine system is a group of glands distributed throughout the human body. This group of glands secretes substances called hormones. These hormones are dumping into the bloodstream (Shier, Butler & Lewis, 2009). The endocrine system does not have a single anatomic location. It is dispersed throughout the human body.
The nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems are all alike in many ways and also very dependent as well. For example the nervous system works along side the endocrine system by helping us adapt and using chemical messengers to signal cells but the response may be different. The nervous system has an immediate response for the body to react to pain, temperature, and many other things. While the endocrine system helps the body to react in a slower way and can help clam the body. While both these systems rely on the messenger cells, the reproductive system reproduces these cells both male and female. All three systems rely on another's job to come together and function productively.
The endocrine system is slower than the nervous system because hormones must travel through the circulatory system to reach their target.
2. Explain the characteristics of the endocrine system that make its reactions different from those of the nervous system.
1. What are the major endocrine glands and how do they help maintain homeostasis? The Endocrine System is made up of the pituitary gland, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, thymus, ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, and the hypothalamus. These glands secrete hormones that help maintain homeostasis in the body. The endocrine system releases hormones that promote growth, development, reproduction, and metabolism.
I. Introduction The human body contains various structures and organs that allow regulations and maintenance of homeostasis. Foundation is built through the framework of the skeletal system, motion is possible due to the muscular system humans have and other body systems that allow humans to perform daily actions. All of this

The Endocrine System plays a very prominent role in the body and a healthy life for an individual. This system is a foundation of hormones and glands. There are multiple glands throughout the body controlled by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is about the size of a pea that weights about 0.5 grams. (1) This gland is located at the base of the brain and rests on the hyperphysical fossa of the sphenoid bone in the center of the middle cranial fossa. (1) The Endocrine system also contains the thyroid gland, which is located in the neck and it controls the growth and the amount of energy of the body.
The Endocrine system is unique because it serves as an information transmitter for other systems. It is the communication system that sends information to other systems coordinating when and how the rest of the body should work. It is kind of like a chief giving a lower ranking officer an order to transport to another high-ranking officer; except more microscopically and scientifically. The endocrine works well with three specific systems, the circulatory, neural and the excretory system
The difference between the two systems, nervous and endocrine systems is that the nervous system uses electrical impulses to send signals through neurons, whereas the hormonal system uses chemical messengers transported into blood plasma to target cells. However, the transmission by the nervous system is short-term but very quick, whereas the transmission by the hormonal system is long-lasting but takes much longer. This means that communication is faster when using the nervous system. In the nervous system, responses are localized - whereas in the hormonal system, they are widespread. Responses are often permanent in the hormonal system, but temporary and reversible in the nervous system.
