This storyboard does not have a description.
I'll go ahead and teach you another one. This next gland is the Thymus gland which is located inferior to the thyroid and superior to the kidneys. This gland synthesizes the thymosin hormone which produces T-cells in the immune system to help fight diseases.
Wait let me see if I can guess this one. Is the target cell of the Thymus the lymph nodes?
Yes! The Thymosin hormones travel to the lymph nodes to help fight off diseases.
So would this be a type of Negative feedback?
Yes it would be! The Thymus gland secretes hormones that help stop and reverse the effects of the disease, making it a form of negative feedback! The funny thing about the Thymus is that it is more closely associated with the immune system than the endocrine system but is relevant to both!
Well it looks like our bus is here! Thanks for teaching me about those 3 glands! Hopefully you can teach me about the 6 another time!
