Caption: Female hormone system. Computer artwork of a female figure illustrating locations of hormone producing glands (known as the endocrine system). The glands (coloured red) seen from top to bottom are: brain (pituitary, hypothalamus, and pineal); thyroid; thymus; adrenals; pancreas and ovaries. These glands produce hormones that are necessary for bodily processes such as growth, metabolism, sexual development & function and response to stress. The pituitary gland regulates the activities of the other glands and the thymus is part of the body's immune response.
