Neuroendocrinology

Neuroendocrinology is the branch of medicine concerned with the interactions between the nervous system and the endocrinology system. In human body, nervous and endocrine systems often act together to regulate the physiologic processes .Human endocrine working has a strong foundation in the CNS, under the direction of the hypothalamus, which has coordinate control over the pituitary organ. The pituitary gland has two major lobes the anterior lobes (adenohypophysis) and posterior lobe called neurohypophysis.  The pituitary gland sometimes called master gland. Circadian rhythms in human follow a near 24hrs cycle and may influence a variety of regulatory function, including the sleep-wake cycle, body temperature direction example of action, for example, eating and drinking, hormone discharge. This is because of the pacemaker in the cerebrum which gets projections of light through the retina and invigorates electrical impulses to neurotransmitters for various functions.
