    Where is the dermis in relation to the epidermis and hypodermis?

    • A.

      Deep to the epidermis

    • B.

      Superficial to the epidermis

    • C.

      Deep to the hypodermis

    • D.

      Deep to the epidermis and superficial to the hypodermis

    Correct Answer
    D. Deep to the epidermis and superficial to the hypodermis
    Explanation
    The dermis is located deep to the epidermis and superficial to the hypodermis. This means that it is situated beneath the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) and above the subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis).

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    All of the following are false regarding the hypodermis except which statement?

      The hypodermis is the third layer of skin

    • B.

      The hypodermis contains the skins blood vessels, nerve endings and glands

    • C.

      The hypodermis lies deep to the dermis, is composed of adipose tissue, and connect the skin to the body

    • D.

      The hypodermis is composed of stratified epithelial tissue

    Correct Answer
    C. The hypodermis lies deep to the dermis, is composed of adipose tissue, and connect the skin to the body
    Explanation
    The hypodermis is not composed of stratified epithelial tissue.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which layer of the epidermis has cells that are actively growing and dividing to produce new epidermis?

    • A.

      The stratum basale

    • B.

      The stratum lucidum

    • C.

      The stratum corneum

    • D.

      The stratum spinosum

    Correct Answer
    A. The stratum basale
    Explanation
    The stratum basale is the correct answer because it is the deepest layer of the epidermis and contains cells that are actively dividing and producing new epidermal cells. These cells, known as basal cells, are responsible for the continuous renewal and growth of the epidermis.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The stratum basale lies deep to which layer of the epidermis?

    • A.

      The stratum basale

    • B.

    • C.

      The stratum corneum

    • D.

      The stratum spinosum

    Correct Answer
    D. The stratum spinosum
    Explanation
    The stratum basale lies deep to the stratum spinosum in the epidermis. The stratum spinosum is located above the stratum basale and below the stratum granulosum. It is composed of several layers of keratinocytes that are connected by desmosomes, giving them a spiny appearance. The stratum basale, also known as the basal layer, is the deepest layer of the epidermis and is responsible for the continuous production of new cells to replace those that are shed from the surface.

    • D.

      The stratum spinosum

    Correct Answer
    C. The stratum corneum
    Explanation
    The stratum corneum is the most superficial layer of the epidermis. It is composed of dead skin cells that are continuously shed and replaced. This layer acts as a protective barrier against external factors such as bacteria, UV radiation, and water loss. It also helps to maintain the skin's hydration and prevent the entry of harmful substances.

    • D.

      The spinosum

    Correct Answer
    A. The stratum basale
    Explanation
    Melanocytes are specialized cells that produce and contain the pigment melanin, which gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. These cells are located in the stratum basale, which is the deepest layer of the epidermis. The stratum basale is responsible for the continuous production of new skin cells and is also where the melanocytes are found. They transfer melanin to neighboring skin cells, providing protection against UV radiation and determining the skin's color.
