Endocrine Notes Supplement

Note: the files on this page require Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The files below constitute the core notes for roughly half of the endocrine section of the Medical Physiology course taught at UC Irvine. Dr. Brandt lectured on these subjects for several years. Some of the information in these files is slightly out-of-date (the files have not been updated since May of 1999), but the files should be otherwise useful. Errors of fact or interpretation should be reported to Dr. Brandt.

Chapter 5 and 6 contain information of direct relevance to the Chem 330 course; the remaining chapters are posted for those interested in the information.
