To know the structure and function of skin and its appendages (derivatives).
- To know the microscopic structure of the epidermis and dermis.
- To know the histological differences between hairy (thin) and glabrous (thick) skin.
- To know the formation and histology of skin appendages: eccrine and apocrine sweat glands, sebaceous glands, hairs, nails and specialised glands as listed below.
- To know the histological features of Pacinian and Meissner corpuscles and free nerve endings.
Examine the following virtual slides, and in course manual identify draw and label the following structures and note their function.
