Label the Skin Anatomy Diagram Name_________________ Use the word bank below to label the skin anatomy diagram. Draw and label a Meissner’s corpuscle. blood vessels - Tubes that carry blood as it melanocyte - a cell in the epidermis that produces circulates. Arteries bring oxygenated blood from the melanin (a dark-colored pigment that protects the heart and lungs; veins return oxygen-depleted blood skin from sunlight). back to the heart and lungs. Pacinian corpuscle - nerve receptors that dermis - the layer of the skin just beneath the respond to pressure and vibration; they are oval epidermis. capsules of sensory nerve fibers located in the subcutaneous fatty tissue and dermis epidermis - the outer layer of the skin. sebaceous gland - a small, sack-shaped gland hair follicle - a tube-shaped sheath that surrounds that releases oily liquids onto the hair follicle. The the part of the hair that is under the skin. It is located oil lubricates and softens the skin. These glands in the epidermis and the dermis. The hair is are located in the dermis, usually next to hair nourished by the follicle at its base (this is also follicles. where the hair grows). sweat gland - (also called sudoriferous gland) a hair shaft - The part of the hair that is above the tube-shaped gland that produces perspiration, or skin. sweat. The gland is located in the epidermis; it releases sweat onto the skin. erector pili muscle - a muscle is connected to each hair follicle and the skin - it contracts in response to subcutaneous tissue or hypodermis – cold, fear, etc., resulting in an erect hair and a technically not a layer of the skin; fatty tissue "goosebump." located under the dermis.
