Oh, sorry.
stratum basale: typically 1-3 cells thick, layer where skin cells grow and divide; also contains melanocytes, Langerhans cells, and Merkel cells
stratum spinosum: composed of layers of polygonal cells that have a spiny appearance (hence its name)
stratum granulosum: thin layer of skin where cells lose their their nuclei and gain hydrophobic qualities
stratum lucidum: thin, clear, layer of dead cells that have flattened, only present in thick skin 
stratum corneum: 15-20 layers of dead cells w/out nuclei nor organelles, serves to protect underlying tissues from              chemicals, dehydration, infection, etc.

Very good; you had all the key things I was looking for! Your turn!

When an individual is exercising after eating a meal, what role will his pre-capillary sphincters play in giving him cramps?

Pre-cappillary sphincters are bands of smooth muscle that can control the blood flow to a certain area. When one exercises after eating a meal, blood flow to the digestive system decreases to allow more blood flow to the muscles under stress therefore causing cramps in the gut.
