To know the histological and cytological features and hormones of the endocrine glands.
- To know the structure of the thyroid and parathyroid glands and the hormones secreted.
- To know the histology of the adrenal cortex and medulla and the hormones secreted by each section.
- To understand the close relationship between the hypothalamus and the pituitary.
- To know the parts of the hypophysis (pituitary). To identify chromophil (acidophil, basophil) and chromophobe cell types of the pars distalis and the hormones associated with each group of cells. To describe the structure of the neurohypophysis and the process of neurosecretion.
- To know the histology of pancreatic islet cells and their hormonal secretions.
Examine the following virtual slides, identify draw and label the following structures. Note the hormone secreted by the various structures and their major function.
