Integumentary System Lab Report

Intro paragraphs 1. Structure, refer to figure 1 ( 10 labels on histology slides )

2. Function: Homeostasis of skin thermoregulation, refer to figure 2 ( Eccrine Sweat
Gland Density ) and refer to figure 3 ( Skin temperature recovery data )
3. Function: Sensory reception of skin, refer to figure 4 ( Two point discrimination
data ) and figure 5 ( Homunculus drawing )
4. Case study application to integumentary system, refer to figure 6 ( case study
infographic )
In this lab report, I will show you some of the special things of the integumentary system.
The lab report shown will contain around 10 labels on the histology of the skin. An image that is
used for this is taken from a lab that was conducted during school. Inside of the skin, was a very
easy to see hair follicle.

How the skin actually functions is very amazing. It runs off something that is called
homeostasis. Homeostasis is basically the way that the body has either positive feedback and
negative feedback.

Both of these feedbacks work when your body experiences too much stress on either side of
things. If the body gets too hot, the receptors in the body will send a message to the control
system ( hypothalamus ) which will cause the effectors to start sweating. In response, your body
will start to cool down again. If the body gets too cold, you will shiver in order to start regaining
the heat again. It is shown in my third picture that when cold is applied to an area, it does not
immediately recover, but instead has a steady process.
In the Human body, it is known that we have sensory receptors. What these allow us to
do is feel the environment around us. Another capability they have is allowing you to feel pain.
One of the major reasons behind this is so that when the body is taking damage, it serves as an
indicator of where and how bad it is. These receptors are mainly in places like your hands and
face, and are more spread out amongst your back, shoulders, and legs. The homunculus
drawing is meant to represent what we would look like with all the receptors in our body evened
Lastly shown is the integumentary systems infographic. In this infographic, it is shown
what skin cancer is and what causes it.
