  34. Some injections hurt more than others. On the basis of what you have larned about skin structure, can you determine why this is so?
    It depends on the relative number of pain receptors stimulated.

  45. Discribe two integumentary system mechanisms that help in regulating body temperature:
    • 1. When capillary blood flow to the skin is enanced (by nervous sytem controls), heat radiates from the skin surface; restriction of bloodflow conserves body heat.
    • 2. Activity of sweatglands, i.e., when perspiration evaporates from the skin surface, heat is lost.
