Often associated with the third eye in terms of anatomical structure and positioning, close to the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, the pineal gland is responsible for the secretion of hormones, especially melatonin. One of the functions of melatonin secretion is to regulate the circadian rhythm – biological cycle that helps determine the rhythm of sleep and wakefulness, both influenced by the presence of light.
The pineal gland is present not only in humans but also in most vertebrates.
A very interesting aspect is given by its internal cellular structure, formed by cone-shaped and rod-shaped cells, the photoreceptor cells also found in the retinal structure, with connections in the visual cortex.
This may be evidence that the pineal gland is a precursor to the eye, another argument for its association with the „third eye.”
