- Stratum basale
- Arrector pili
- Subcutaneous tissue
- a the deepest cell layer of the epidermis, lies closest to the dermis and is connected to it along a wavy borderline that resembles corrugated cardboard.
- b the oily secretion of sebaceous glands.
- c a smooth muscle attached to hair follicles that causes "goose bumps" to appear on the skin when contracted
- d a scale-like modification of the epidermis that corresponds to the hoof or claw of other animals. Has a free edge, a body(visible attached portion), and a root (embedded in the skin).
- e essentially is adipose tissue. Not part of the skin, but it does anchor the skin to underlying organs and provides a site for nutrient (fat) storage. The tissue serves as a shock absorber and insulates the deeper tissues from the extreme temperature changes occurring outside the body. (responsible for women's curves).
5 Multiple choice questions
- the skin; composed of epidermal and dermal layers
- found all over the body, they produce sweat, important in part of the body's heat-regulating equipment. Supplied with nerve endings that cause them to secrete sweat when the external temperature or body temperature is high.
- the glands that produce a saline solution called sweat.
- the deepest skin layer, contains irregularly arranged connective tissue fibers, as well as blood vessels, sweat and oil glands and deep pressure receptors called lamellar corpuscles.
- membrane that lines a cavity without an opening to the outside of the body (except for joint cavities, which have a synovial membrane); serosa.
5 True/False questions
Epidermis → the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
Melanocytes → the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
Peritoneum . → the serous membrane lining the interior of the abdominal cavity and covering the surfaces of the abdominal organs.
Exocrine Gland → found all over the body, they produce sweat, important in part of the body's heat-regulating equipment. Supplied with nerve endings that cause them to secrete sweat when the external temperature or body temperature is high.
Papillary layer → the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.
