Thymus is a gland located in the middle of upper chest between the sternum (Breast Bone) and heart and possibly because of its central location in the upper chest between the lungs and next to the heart, ancient Greeks thought it might be the seat of the soul or the emotions.It wasnt until 1961 that medical science began to understand the actual functions of the thymus and its crucial relationship to the early development of the immune system.
In effect the thymus is the school for T-cells. T-cells (T-lymphocytes, where the T is for thymus) along with similar B-cells produced in bone marrow are a critical component of the bodys immune system. Each T-cell carries molecular receptors, something like locks for unique keys that match a specific foreign substance known as an antigen. If a T-cell lock meets its antigen key, it captures and kills it. This is how the body fights the invasion of antigens such as viruses, bacteria, certain poisons and anything else recognized by T-cells. The thymus is the organ that trains the T-cells.
