endrocrine vs nervous system

endocrine system consists of endocrine glands (specialized ductless glands) that secrete hormones that travel through the bloodstream to signal specific target cells throughout the body.
endocrine system hormones travel throughout the body to the target organs upon which they act. They will bind selectively to receptor sites on the surface of the receptor cells.
endocrine system and nervous system both function to achieve and maintain stability of the internal environment (homeostasis).
endocrine system and nervous system are capable of working alone or in concert with each other.
The endocrine and nervous systems work together to regulate metabolism, response to stress, sexual reproduction, blood pressure, and water and salt balances.
endocrine system Secreting cells send hormones through the bloodstream to signal specific target cells
endocrine system Hormones diffuse into the blood and travel long distances to virtually every area of the body
Endocrine effectors consist of virtually all tissues
endocrine system Regulatory effects are slow and tend to last for long periods
Nervous System Neurons secrete neurotransmitters to signal nearby cells that have an appropriate receptor site
Nervous System Neurotransmitters are sent very short distances across a synapse
Nervous System Nervous effectors are limited to muscle and glandular tissue
Nervous System Regulatory effects appear rapidly and are often short lived
