The scalp is composed of skin, (dense) connective tissue, aponeurosis (Galea), loose connective tissue, and periosteum. Hence the acronym scalp. In this text, “scalp” will be used to designate all of these anatomical layers as a single group, and each will be given its specific anatomical name (e.g., skin, dense connective tissue, Galea) when referred to as individual components of the Scalp.
