Description

The pineal gland is a small organ shaped like a pine cone (hence its name).
In humans it is firm, red and roughly 1 cm in length,
It is located on the midline attached by a hollow stalk to the posterior end of the roof of the third ventricle in the brain.
It is dorsal to the superior colliculus and behind and beneath the stria medullaris between the laterally positioned thalamic bodies.
It is part of the epithalamus.
Clothed in pia mater, it is embedded in the dense connective tissue of the subarachnoid cistern of the great cerebral vein formed by the junction of the internal cerebral vein in the transverse fissure between the pineal and splenium of the corpus callosum.
It originates from the 3rd ventricle as a diverticulum later attached to stalk in the pineal recess.
A structure of the diencephalon of the brain, the pineal gland produces several important hormones including melatonin.

Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles.
The pineal gland is composed of cells called pinealocytes and cells of the nervous system called glial cells.
The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.
Function:
The pineal gland is involved in:
Secretion of the Hormone Melatonin:
The pineal gland synthesizes and secretes melatonin a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body.
Ultimately, melatonin has the ability to entrain biological rhythms and has important effects on reproductive function of many animals.
The light-transducing ability of the pineal gland has led some to call the pineal the third eye.
A pineal gland once tuned into to proper frequencies with help of meditation, yoga or various esoteric, occult methods, enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly known as astral travel or remote viewing

Melatonin: Synthesis, Secretion and Receptors
The precursor to melatonin is serotonin, a neurotransmitter that itself is derived from the amino acid tryptophan.
Within the pineal gland, serotonin is chemically changed to yield melatonin.
Synthesis and secretion of melatonin is dramatically affected by light exposure to the eyes.
The fundamental pattern observed is that serum concentrations of melatonin are low during the daylight hours, and increase to a peak during the dark.
The mechanism behind this pattern of secretion during the dark cycle is that activity of the rate-limiting enzyme in melatonin synthesis - serotonin N-acetyltransferase (NAT) - is low during daylight and peaks during the dark phase.

À propos de l'auteur

Medical doctor since 1972.Started Kee Clinic in 1974 at 15 Holland Dr #03-102, relocated to 36 Holland Dr #01-10 in 2009.Did my M.Sc (Health Management ) in 1991 and Ph.D (Healthcare Administration) in 1993.Dr Kenneth Kee is still working as a family doctor at the age of 70.However he has reduced his consultation hours to 3 hours in the morning and 2 hours inthe afternoon.He first started writing free blogs on medical disorders seen in the clinic in 2007 on http://kennethkee.blogspot.com.His purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of his patients which is also his dissertation for his Ph.D (Healthcare Administration). He then wrote an autobiography account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.comThis autobiography account “A Family Doctor’s Tale” was combined with his early “A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders” into a new Wordpress Blog “A Family Doctor’s Tale” on http://ken-med.com.From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 1000 eBooks.He apologized for typos and spelling mistakes in his earlier books.He will endeavor to improve the writing in futures.Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.The later books go into more details of medical disorders.He has published 1000 eBooks on various subjects on health, 1 autobiography of his medical journey, another on the autobiography of a Cancer survivor, 2 children stories and one how to study for his nephew and grand-daughter.The purpose of these simple guides is to educate patient on health disorders and not meant as textbooks.He does not do any night duty since 2000 ever since Dr Tan had his second stroke.His clinic is now relocated to the Buona Vista Community Centre.The 2 units of his original clinic are being demolished to make way for a new Shopping Mall.He is now doing some blogging and internet surfing (bulletin boards since the 1980's) startingwith the Apple computer and going to PC.The entire PC is upgraded by himself from XT to the present Pentium duo core.The present Intel i7 CPU is out of reach at the moment because the CPU is still expensive.He is also into DIY changing his own toilet cistern and other electric appliance.His hunger for knowledge has not abated and he is a lifelong learner.The children have all grown up and there are 2 grandchildren who are even more technically advanced than the grandfather where mobile phones are concerned.This book is taken from some of the many articles in his blog (now with 740 posts) A Family Doctor’s Tale.Dr Kee is the author of:"A Family Doctor's Tale""Life Lessons Learned From The Study And Practice Of Medicine""Case Notes From A Family Doctor"

Introduction

The Pineal Gland

"Pineal gland

heaven in a grain of sand

one cell as a whole

expressing the soul

Called Nummulite

in Egypt

where the pharaohs

knew it

and build it

according to

their inner view

acting intuitively

on what they knew "

Posted by Poems from the Heart phone

"The relationship has been conclusively proven by recent studies of the pineal gland. This tiny organ in the center of the cranium has turned out to be more than the vaguely defined third eye of the mystics. It produces melatonin and serotonin, two neurohormones that, among many other functions, directly control all of the biocycles"

Robert O Becker.

This was going to be a book on the anatomy and physiology of the Pineal Gland

It still is a book on the Pineal Gland and what a human needs to produce Melatonin.

I will try to add some descriptions in simple vernacular words and make it more fun to read.

The pineal gland is a small organ shaped like a pine cone (hence its name).

In humans it is firm, red and roughly 1 cm in length,

It is located on the midline attached by a hollow stalk to the posterior end of the roof of the third ventricle in the brain.

It is dorsal to the superior colliculus and behind and beneath the stria medullaris between the laterally positioned thalamic bodies.

It is part of the epithalamus.

Clothed in pia mater, it is embedded in the dense connective tissue of the subarachnoid cistern of the great cerebral vein formed by the junction of the internal cerebral vein in the transverse fissure between the pineal and splenium of the corpus callosum.

It originates from the 3rd ventricle as a diverticulum later attached to stalk in the pineal recess.

A structure of the diencephalon of the brain, the pineal gland produces several important hormones including melatonin.

Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles.

The pineal gland is composed of cells called pinealocytes and cells of the nervous system called glial cells.

The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.

Function:

The pineal gland is involved in several functions of the body including:

Secretion of the Hormone Melatonin:

The pineal gland synthesizes and secretes melatonin a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body.

Ultimately, melatonin has the ability to entrain biological rhythms and has important effects on reproductive function of many animals.

The light-transducing ability of the pineal gland has led some to call the pineal the third eye.
