Humans are mammals in the primate category.

Pituitary Gland

The Pituitary Gland is the endocrine gland (hypophysis) which sits at the base of the brain. It is about the size of a chickpea. Hormones are secreted to control stress, growth, reproduction, metabolism, lactation and water / salt concentration in the kidneys.


Baroque is related to artistic characteristics and expression prevalent in the 17th century. It contains bold ornamentation and the juxtaposition of contrasting elements conveying a sense of drama such as grotesqueness, extravagance and flamboyance.

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand
