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.
