Serous membrane → membrane that lines a cavity without an opening to the outside of the body (except for joint cavities, which have a synovial membrane); serosa.
Eccrine 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.
Synovial membrane → membrane that lines the fibrous capsule of a synovial joint.
Keratin → the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
Hair follicle → a smooth muscle attached to hair follicles that causes "goose bumps" to appear on the skin when contracted
