which gland secretes hormones that affect other endocrine glands?

a. pineal
b. pituitary
c. thyroid
d. adrenal
e. pancreas
i think its B


  1. It’s B. I am in psychology and we just learned about the endocrine system.
    Think of the pituitary gland as the “master” of all the other glands. It secretes hormones that signal to the other glands to stop producing or increase production.

  2. b. pituitary gland
    coz it acts as da master gland and located in the brain, controllin amount of hormones excreted by the hormone glands in the body

  3. b. pituitary. This is the pea sized gland in your brain which secretes hormones which stimulate the other glands in your body.

  4. Definitely B. The people answering C, the thyroid gland, are thinking of Thyroxin’s effects on the metabolism rates of cells around the body – good, but not directly affecting other glands.
    The thyroid just determines how much you’ll hold onto weight.
    The pituitary sends out LH and FSH control the reproductive glands, ACTH to stimulate the adrenal cortex, TSH to stimulate the thyroid, ADH for water conservation in the kidneys, growth hormone and even prolactin for women to make breast milk.
    The pituitary is the master gland – controlling the endocrine system. It is directly connected to the hypothalamus providing a link between the nervous system and the endocrine system.
