Hypothalamus, it links the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland (hypophysis).

P.S. - It secretes hypothalamic tropic factors (hypothalamic hormones - neurohormones, often called hypothalamic-releasing hormones) to the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland by way of a special capillary system, called the hypothalamic-hypophysial portal system.(Courtesy: Wikipedia - the free encyclopedia)
