Caption: Pituitary gland in the brain. Computer artwork of a person's head showing the brain inside. The highlighted area (centre) shows the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a small endocrine gland about the size of a pea protruding off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain. It secretes hormones regulating homoeostasis, including trophic hormones that stimulate other endocrine glands. It is functionally connected to and influenced by the hypothalamus.
