I believe the cell membrane has layers like the dermis of the skin. So I believe the cell surface membrane is exactly like. I didn’t Google, just tried to use mi common sense but Google is great for questions lololol

Try to imagine it like a balloon (the cell membrane) the outside of the balloon that you can touch is the outer or cell surface membrane and the inside of the blown up balloon that would house the rest of the cells is the inner membrane layer. Hope this makes sense

Good thing you asked, I looveeee bio my favourite!! xx

Well in shortttt :
The cell membrane is a thin outside membrane that seperates the inside of the cells from the outside which ultimately preserves the cell from its enviorment. The cell surface membrane separates the interior and outisde inhabits. xx

So its just the outside layer of the membrane. Are there structures and cells present on it? And just to confirm, there are membrane in it, and cells in them...
