Endocrine system:

The endocrine system is composed of glands which produce chemical substances known as Hormones ,and it plays an important role in reproduction, growth and regulation of energy.

Nervous system:

Nervous system is a highly specialized system responsible for the control and integration of body's many activities.

The endocrine and nervous system are two of the primary communicating and coordinating systems in the body.

Ans : A) Adrenals and pituitary

  1. Adrenal medulla is the inner part of the adrenal gland and consists of sympathetic prostaganglionic neurons.

This secrets  catecholamines epinephrine,norepinephrine and dopamine usually considered neurotransmitters, released into the circulation and transported to their target tissue  

2. Pituitary gland is also known as ''master gland" most of its function rely on an international with the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus and pituitary gland integrate communication between the nervous and endocrine system.
