You will notice in this histology lab that it is described two-dimensionally as a cross-section of coiled up spaghetti. Check out the image (posted below the video) to see why.
Tissue and Cells looked at are: Thick skin, Thin Skin, ductal systems and corpuscles in both, and specifically an axilla.
The learning objectives are:
1. Be able to identify the strata of both thick and thin skin
2. Recognize the morphological changes of Keratinocytes as they rise through the layers of the epidermis
3. list three other cell types that also occur in the epidermis
4. Be able to identify the two basic layers of the dermis
5. Be able to identify the appendages of skin and their subcomponents
This video guides you through the basic histology of the Integument System.
