Bundles of smooth muscle fibres (the arrector pilorum) attach to the sheath of the hair follicle, deep to the sebaceous gland, and pass to the papillary layers of the dermis on the side towards which the hair slopes (Fig. 2b). 3 The relationship of the nail to the skin. stand away from the skin, elevating the skin 2 30 ANATOMY AND HUMAN MOVEMENT around the opening of the hair follicles, thereby producing 'goose flesh'. This action also compresses the sebaceous glands causing them to empty their secretions onto the skin surface.
All but the very longest ultraviolet wavelengths are absorbed by the skin, and if sufficiently high levels of ultraviolet have been absorbed then the characteristic effects of erythema, thickening of the epidermis, increased pigmentation and finally peeling will all be seen. The general dryness and natural greasiness of the skin surface mean that it has a high electrical resistance. Consequently, if electrical currents are to be applied directly to body tissues this resistance must be reduced. This is usually successfully achieved by the application of moist pads or conducting gels to the skin below the site of electrode attachment.
The bony cochlea consists of two and threequarter turns of a spiral, and resembles a shell lying on its side. It has a central supporting column of bone (the modiolus) to which is attached a thin lamina of bone partially dividing the spiral into two parts, the scala vestibuli above and the scala tympani below (Fig. 6b). The membranous cochlear duct lines the bony cochlea and is triangular in cross section. The outer wall of the triangle is thickened to form the spiral ligament, the lower part is the basilar membrane while the upper part is the vestibular membrane.
