This is the second part of our two-part webinar series on the endocrine system. Males and females share many of the same endocrine organs, hormones, and axes, but differ when it comes to reproductive hormones. In this webinar, you will learn about the differences (and overlaps) between male and female reproductive hormones, as well as about the female reproductive cycle.
Endocrine System (Part 2): Reproductive Hormones
At a glance
Differentiate steriod and peptide hormones
Differentiate hormone targets and effects
Predict hormon levels given a disease or a person's plasma profile
The similarities and differences of the HPG axis in males and females
Specific cells that aid in the production of sperm and oocytes (eggs)
The endometrial cycle (menstrual cycle) in females
Birth control methods and pregnancy tests
On the MCAT
Reproductive hormones overlap with both the endocrine system and development (oogenesis and spermatogenesis)
The test tends to favor the female reproductive cycle more since it is more complicated
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
