Physiology and regulation of endocrine secretions. Emphasizes neuroendocrine, reproductive, growth, and metabolic aspects of endocrinology. Examples are selected from many animals, including humans.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: animal or human physiology course or permission of instructor.

Distribution Category (PBS-AS, BIO-AS)

Outcomes
  • Define the organization of the endocrine system with a focus on mammals.
  • Explain the physiological function of major hormones and interactions among components of the endocrine system to control homeostasis. For each major hormone, describe its cellular source, biosynthesis, chemical nature, storage, factors controlling its secretion, cellular mechanisms of action on target cells, and physiological functions.
  • Discuss how the roles of hormones change during developmental processes.
  • Predict the consequences of disturbances in components of the endocrine system.
  • Illustrate how basic scientific research as well as clinical studies of endocrine disorders contribute to the advancement of basic knowledge and development of therapeutic strategies for endocrine disorders.
  • Appraise how the acquisition of knowledge about the endocrine system is ongoing and how key advances in technology from multiple fields (physiology, cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics) have promoted advancements in knowledge of the endocrine system.
