Front Back
Hair shaft
the part of a hair projecting beyond the skin
Sweat pore
The surface opening of the duct of a sweat gland.
Dermal Papillae
The superficial projections of the dermis (corium) that interdigitate with recesses in the overlying epidermis; they contain vascular loops and specialized nerve endings, and are arranged in ridge like lines best developed in the hand and foot.
Meissen’s corpuscle
One of numerous oval bodies found in the papillae of the skin, especially those of the fingers and toes; they consist of a connective tissue capsule in which the axon fibrils terminate around and between a pile of wedge-shaped epithelia cells
Free nerve ending
A form of peripheral ending of sensory nerve fibers in which the terminal filaments end freely in the tissue.
Reticular layer of the dermis
the deeper layer of the dermis formed of interlacing fascicule of white fibrous tissue
Sebaceous gland
A normal gland of the skin which empties an oily secretion into the hair follicle near the surface of the skin.
Arrestor Pile Muscle
Bundles of smooth muscle fibers, attached to the deep part of the hair follicles, passing outward alongside the sebaceous glands to the papillary layer of the corium; they act to pull the hairs erect, causing "goose bumps" or "goose flesh" (cutis anserine).
Sensory Nerve Fiber
A nerve fiber that carries impulses toward the central nervous system
Eccrine sweat gland
Any of the numerous small, tubular glands that are found nearly everywhere in the skin of humans and that secrete perspiration externally through pores to help regulate body temperature.
Pacinian corpuscle
Rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors found in subcutaneous tissue beneath both hairy and glabrous skin. Pacinian corpuscles contain an afferent nerve fiber surrounded by a capsule with multiple concentric layers. They have large receptive fields and are most sensitive to high-frequency stimuli, such as vibration.
Any blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart. Arteries have a high pressure than veins and comprise a smooth muscle wall which transmits the pulse shock wave from closure of the aortic valve in humans.
Blood vessel that returns blood from the microvasculature to the heart, walls thinner and less elastic than those of artery.
Adipose Tissue
Connective tissue that has been specialized to store fat.
Root Hair Plexus
an elongated tubular extension of an epidermal cell of a root, serving to absorb water and minerals from the soil.
Hair Follicle
a small cavity in the epidermis and corium of the skin, from which a hair develops.
Hair Root
The part of a hair that is embedded in a hair follicle.
a tissue or layer of cells beneath the epidermis.
a combining form meaning “skin,” “layer of tissue,” used in the formation of compound words: exodermises; gastro dermis.
the outer, nonvascular, nonsensitive layer of the skin, covering the true skin or corium.
Stratum corneum
The horny outer layer of the epidermis, consisting mainly of dead or peeling cells.
Stratum lucidum
a thin somewhat translucent layer of cells lying superficial to the stratum granulosum and under the stratum corneum especially inthickened parts of the epidermis
Stratum granulosum
a layer of granular cells lying immediately above the stratum germinativum in most parts of the epidermis
Stratum spinosum
the layers of prickle cells over the layer of the stratum germinativum capable of undergoing mitosis.with is also called a  prickle cell layer
Stratum basale
the layer of stratum germinativum especially in the endometrium that undergoes mitotic division
