BI 339 - Endocrinology


This course will treat the organization and function of the major vertebrate endocrine glands. For each gland, the synthesis, release and delivery of chemical signals will be discussed together with the effects those secretions have on their target cells. The relationship between the nervous system and endocrine system will also be examined to explore how these control systems work together to maintain homeostasis. A variety of pathophysiologies linked to endocrine malfunction will also be discussed.

Note: The number of enrolled Biology Department majors will be limited to 16 students.

Three hours of lecture each week for one semester. Four credits.

Prerequisite(s): BI 103  - BI 104  or equivalent as determined by Department Chair.
