The neuroendocrine system links the nervous system (brain and nerves) and the endocrine system (controlling the release of hormones). It is a two-way system: the brain controls the release of hormones, and hormones can influence brain activity. The system responds to changes in the external (temperature, pain, stress) and internal (infection, growth, tiredness) environment to keep the body in balance.
