Endocrine systems. Computer artwork showing the locations of hormone-producing glands (endocrine glands) in males and females. Within the brain is the pituitary gland. In the throat is the thyroid gland. On top of each kidney is an adrenal gland. Between the kidneys is the pancreas. In the male are the testis and in the female the ovaries. These glands produce hormones that are necessary for bodily processes such as growth, metabolism, sexual development and function, and response to stress. The hypophysis, or pituitary gland, regulates the activities of the other glands.
