Understanding the Physiology of the Skin

  • : Online

The Understanding the Physiology of the Skin learning program is designed as an introduction to the physiology of the organ that separates the body’s internal environment from the external one. This program begins by reviewing the many functions of the skin, such as protection, heat regulation, and the senses of touch and pain. It then discusses skin growth and age-related skin changes, both those seen on the surface of the skin and those accumulating on a cellular level. Finally, the program discusses how skin is repaired after injuries like wounds and burns.
