Video: The Skin, Its Structure, Function and Response to Injury

Section 34.1 deals with the Skin, starting with its structure, with the two layers: Epidermis and dermis. I also talk about the functions of the skin, from regulating internal temperature to functioning as a sense organ, producing vitamin D and protecting the underlying tissue. The lecture concludes with a discussion of what happens to the skin in response to an injury.

This is a part of Chapter 34 in Biology: the Dynamics of Life, which deals with Protection, Support and Locomotion. Enjoy!
