Class 10 Science ICSE Board - ENDOCRINE GLANDS

‘Endocrine glands’ is the 10th chapter of biology in the ICSE 10th board. In this students will learn about endocrine glands which are the glands that are crucial for the survival of living organisms and their growth.  The endocrine system consisting of endocrine glands can be defined as the messenger system which has feedback loops of the hormones released by these glands. The secretions called hormones are released directly into the circulatory system which in turn, regulates the distant target organs. In invertebrates, the hypothalamus is called the main neural control center of the endocrine system. The imbalance of endocrine glands can lead to disorders and diseases in the organism thus, endocrine glands are extremely important for the proper functioning of the body.

Students can find the ICSE exercises on Vedantu. These are solved and explained by the subject experts on Vedantu which can help students in the preparation of boards or any other tests. Students can access the free solutions in PDF format and use them for their reference. 


1. What are endocrine glands described in Endocrine Glands Solutions for Class 10 Science ICSE Board (Concise - Selina Publishers)?

Endocrine glands are the glands that release hormones (chemical substances that act as a messenger for the whole body) directly in the bloodstream. These hormones basically control almost all major parts of the functioning of our body. They control our growth and development, mood, metabolism as well as reproduction. The endocrine system regulates the amount of hormone released which depends on the number of hormones already present in the blood i.e. a proper balance is maintained for the hormone levels. 

2. What are disorders of endocrine glands mentioned in Endocrine Glands Solutions for Class 10 Science ICSE Board (Concise - Selina Publishers)?

Disorders of endocrine glands are diseases related to endocrine glands. The endocrine glands’ hormones control all the major functions of the body e.g. the growth and metabolism, reproduction, sugar levels, etc. The imbalance in the levels of these hormones can lead to disorders. Some of the common endocrine disorders are acromegaly (growth hormone overproduction), hyperthyroidism (hyperproduction of the thyroid hormones i.e. an overactive thyroid), and hypothyroidism (extremely poor production of thyroid hormones i.e. an underactive thyroid). 

3. How are endocrine glands different from endocrine glands according to Endocrine Glands Solutions for Class 10 Science ICSE Board (Concise - Selina Publishers)?

The major difference between exocrine glands and endocrine glands in the presence or absence of ducts. Endocrine glands are called ductless glands i.e. they secrete their products (hormones) directly to the blood which targets a particular organ. Exocrine glands are also called duct glands i.e. they have ducts and secrete on surfaces instead of directly to the blood like endocrine glands. For example, sebaceous and sweat glands have secretions on the skin and salivary glands’ secretions are oral in nature.

4. Why is the hypothalamus important for endocrine glands according to Endocrine Glands Solutions for Class 10 Science ICSE Board (Concise - Selina Publishers)?

The hypothalamus is a part of the brain that controls the endocrine system and regulates them. The hypothalamus sends electrical and hormonal messages/signals to the pituitary gland which in turn, releases the hormones that carry signals to all the other glands. When the hypothalamus detects any imbalance in the hormone levels (either a rise or fall in level), it sends a signal to the pituitary gland to stop releasing hormones which ultimately leads to the target organs stopping releasing their hormones thus maintaining the balance. This process is called homeostasis which is important for the proper functioning of the body.

5. Can I get Endocrine Glands Solutions for Class 10 Science ICSE Board (Concise - Selina Publishers) on Vedantu?
