Pineal gland: The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland located in the middle area of the brain between the two hemispheres of the brain. The pineal gland contains specialized cells called pinealocytes, which produce the hormone melatonin. The pineal gland and the melatonin it produces play a large role in the regulation of sleep cycles and circadian rhythm among other actions. Conditions that can afflict the pineal gland include light exposure, jet lag, nightshift work, radiation exposure, pineal gland tumors, calcification of the pineal gland, and trauma.
