    • (4) production of vitamin D
    • (5) sensory reception
  319. In general, how does the skin regulate temperature?
    heat is given off through rich capillary networks (subpapillary plexus) and sweat glands prevent overheating b/c sweat cools the skin as it evaporates
  320. Why are small amounts of UV light necessary for the body?
    UV light is needed for the synthesis of Vitamin D, which helps regulate calcium and phosphorus metabolism
  321. What are lines of tension?
    elastic and collagen fibers are arranged in patterns; seperations or less dense regions of collagen bundles form lines of tension; incisions made across these lines tend to heal more readily
  322. True or False: the dermis is highly vascularized

  325. subpapillary plexus
    network of converging and diverging blood vessels located just below the dermal papillae; functions in temperature regulation
  326. How does the subpapillary plexus regulate temperature?
    when internal organs needs more blood or heat, these vessels constrict and send more blood into the body; when it is hot, dermal vessels engorge with blood and radiate heat away from it
