Skin Lab Report Abstract The whole purpose of this experiment was to make me more familiar with the integumentary system of the body, as well as to examine the skin. The integumentary system includes the skin, hair, nails, and exocrine glands. My hypothesis is for the sweat gland experiment is that I would have almost the normal number of dots on my graph paper, as for the skin receptors, I do think that both sides of the body will have very similar sensory level. The methods used to conduct in this experiment, in particular the sweat gland distribution experiment was gathering all the supplies, such as cutting out the 4 5cm by 5 cm squares, putting tape on them, then applying betadine on the four areas of the skin, and placing the squares with tape over the skin for 20 minutes. The key results to found during the sweat gland distribution experiment was that I ended up with very little dots on my graph paper, maybe 1-2, which shocked me in that results, on some of the squares, I didn’t have any dots. The results of the sweat gland distribution experiment do not match up with my hypothesis because I had way less dots on my graph paper than I had expected to. The general methods used to conduct the skin receptors experiment included unbending paperclips into a u shape, and measuring them between .5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, and 4 cm. After doing that, I carefully checked my partners left side of their body by touching the paperclip to their scalp, forehead, front neck, back of their neck, shoulder, upper arm, wrist, back of hand, palm of hand, tip of thumb, tip of index finger, tip of middle finger, tip of ring finger, and tip of pinkie finger. I repeated this on their right side of their body as well. The key results found during this experiment was both sides of the body varied sometimes and other times, it was the same. My hypothesis wasn’t correct, as I thought He would of have the same sensory on both sides, when it varied.
