...  in the brain and the body’s peripheral organs. These receptors are important in metabolizing fat and glucose, and it controls a person’s appetite and cravings through his or her Hypothalamus. The Hypothalamus is also responsible for controlling a person’s caloric intake and regulating an individual’s energy balance. By blocking CB1 receptors and controlling your  ...

Cabaser
...  and interrupting prolactin production’s functional output. Cabaser is deemed more effective than its counterpart, Bromocriptine, because it directly touches on the dopamine receptors of the Hypothalamus. That impedes the sending of signals to the pituitary gland, which releases prolactin. So, excessive prolactin production is going to be dealt with better with Cabaser. People who are  ...

Cushing’s Disease
...  If your body’s cortisol production levels are at normal rates, you would become less susceptible to the development of Cushing’s disease. However, if the regulating switches of your Hypothalamus and pituitary glands start showing signs of dysfunction, your cortisol levels would also increase and make you more susceptible to Cushing’s syndrome. Its symptoms and signs  ...

Amenorrhea
...  Amenorrhea Causes The causes of amenorrhea can vary from simple lifestyle factors to more serious medical conditions. Primary amenorrhea may be a symptom of pituitary disease, a problem in the Hypothalamus, missing reproductive organs, hormonal imbalance, or structural abnormalities in the reproductive system. On the other hand, secondary amenorrhea may be caused by contraceptives, breast  ...

Glandular Structure
...  the endocrine pours the secretion directly to the blood stream. They are the ductless glands that affect the body at large. Some of the important organs are the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, Hypothalamus, ovaries, testes, pancreas, and thymus. All these organs have their specific target organs. Overgrowth Overgrowth of cells can also occur in the glandular structure. If it happens, it  ...

Adrenal Gland
...  for producing epinephrine and norepinephrine, as well as the hormones related with stress through the process of corticosteroids. One of the main functions of the adrenal gland is to work with the Hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. The Hypothalamus produces corticotrophin-releasing hormones that stimulate the pituitary gland and, in turn, the pituitary gland produces corticotrophin hormones  ...

Hypothalamus
...  you aware that you experience sensations because of a small portion of your brain called the Hypothalamus? The Hypothalamus recognizes the different stimuli coming from the various parts of the body. Only when the Hypothalamus recognizes them do we feel sexual pleasure, rage, fear, and other emotions. This is why when we are unconscious, we fail to feel any of these sensations. Hormones  ...

Diencephalon
...  have names such as the medial, lateral or central nuclei. Together with the basal ganglia and cerebellum, this part of the diencephalon is responsible for the movement coordination of the brain. Hypothalamus The Hypothalamus lies just beneath the thalamus. It is the lower part of the diencephalon. It is crucial in the regulation of behavior. The organ functions by stimulating the release of  ...

Spermatozoa
...  a man’s pelvic area. How is spermatozoa formed? There are several gonadal hormones involved in spermatogenesis or the formation of spermatozoa. The gonadal-releasing hormone or factor in the Hypothalamus is responsible for stimulating the anterior pituitary to increase the secretion of androgens and Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH. The FSH, in return, will enhance the production of  ...

Reticular Formation
...  stem. Its network aids in creating the reticular activating system, the one that is responsible for the cerebrum. This network is extended until the spinal cord, the pons, midbrain, thalamus and Hypothalamus. Most of the structures in the brain send and receive fibers which go up and down within the entire reticular formation. The network’s nuclei continuously sends impulses to the  ...
