Endocrine Facts and Figures

The adrenal glands are commonly studied in the context of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis because these glands collectively produce hormones that affect each other, and regulate a variety of physiological processes. Indeed, the adrenal glands can release four types of hormones in response to physiological stimuli: glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, cathecholamines, and adrenal androgens.
