5 True/False Questions
Serous fluid → glands that empty their sebum secretion into hair follicles.
Subcutaneous tissue → 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).
Exocrine Gland → glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
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.
Melanocytes → the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
