The thyroid gland, located in the neck, secretes hormones in response to stimulation by TSH from the pituitary gland. The thyroid secretes hormones that regulate growth and metabolism, and play a role in brain development during childhood. The parathyroid glands are four small glands located at the four corners of the thyroid gland. The hormone they secrete, parathyroid hormone, regulates the level of calcium in the blood. The thymus gland is a bi-lobed organ located in the superior mediastinum, anterior to the heart and great vessels. The thymus is fully formed and functional after birth. It persists as a large organ until about the time of puberty, when T-cell differentiation and proliferation are reduced and most of the lymphatic tissue is replaced by adipose tissue (involution). The organ can be stimulated under conditions that demand rapid T-cell proliferation.
