Endocrine Glands & Their Hormones

Home Up Hypothalamus and Pituitary Other Endocrine Glands Web Page PPT on Hormones

    I have created a PowerPoint presentation for you on the glands.  If you are using Internet Explorer, you can view the entire presentation right in your browser window by clicking here or on the "View PPT in IE4" link above.  Otherwise, you can view the presentation in individual web pages in your browser, or you can download the presentation to your own computer and view it in PowerPoint on your computer; these can be done by clicking in this sentence or by clicking on the "web page PPT on hormones" link above.  I recommend either viewing it in the Internet Explorer window, or downloading it and viewing it on your computer so that you can see all the animation effects I have included.  By animation effects, I mean that the words will move by and you'll hear sounds as they move.  I got a lot of my family to help make the sounds this weekend... I say one of them, my sister says another, her sister-in-law, Joan, says another, Joan's boyfriend Pat says another, and, best of all, Elliot says a couple.  I actually got Elliot to say "anterior" and "pineal" into the computer microphone!

    Meanwhile, if you look at them as individual web pages, without the animations, I have included some additional notes... but not much that isn't repeated in my other web pages here.

    I have summarized the glands and the hormones they produce in the table below.  I tried to do this to help you organize all this information, but I'm not sure if my summary table is what will work best for you.  If you don't understand this table well, just skip it and figure out another way for yourself.  OK?  I also skipped the pancreas in this table.

    To understand the following (complicated and large) table, use the following key to background colors:
