Caption

Pituitary gland. Computer artwork depicting the location of the pituitary gland. An enlarged pituitary gland (hypophysis) is seen at the base of the brain. It is known as the master endocrine gland as it regulates and controls the activities of the other endocrine glands as well as many body processes. The pituitary gland is actually the size of a pea. It is attached by a short stalk of nerve fibres to the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that controls the pituitary gland by nervous and hormonal means. The pituitary gland produces a total of six hormones including growth hormone and oxytocin, which stimulates childbirth.
