“After an egg is fertilised and embryo development begins, the first tissue to form is the ectoderm. The word comes from the Greek ektos, which means “outside” and derma, meaning “skin.” The ectoderm, or outermost layer of the embryo, gives rise to both the epidermis (your outermost layer of skin) and the brain.”
Dr. Sadeghi asks us to think about the connection between the brain and the skin, as they are made from the same core material, suggesting that they may act in similar ways.
Your skin and its receptors are able to pick up on your reaction to your environment, and send these messages to your cells.
