Caption: Skin layers. Light micrograph of a cross-section through human skin. The top layer is the stratum corneum. The dead skin cells from this layer are continuously being shed and replaced by cells from the living epidermis layer below (purple). These two upper layers form thin layers over the thicker dermis, a layer of fibrous connective tissue that supports and nourishes the epidermis. At bottom is the hypodermis, which also contains fat tissue. Structures seen in the dermis and hypodermis are: sweat glands (purple) and Pacinian corpuscles (sensory receptors; large and round, one at lower left, two at lower centre). Magnification: x14 when printed 10cm wide.
