A quantitative study of cutaneous receptors and afferent fibres in the cat and rabbit
1. The discharge in myelinated afferent fibres innervating hairs in anaesthetized cats and rabbits, dissected from the saphenous nerve, was recorded during controlled movements of the hairs.

The structure and function of the slowly adapting type II mechanoreceptor in hairy skin.
The slowly adapting type II mechanoreceptor in hairy skin of the cat was studied in detail using histological and neurophysiological methods. The end organ (Ruffini ending) was lightly encapsulated,Expand

Cutaneous thermoreceptors in primates and sub‐primates
  • A. Iggo
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of physiology
  • 1 February 1969
1. Cutaneous thermoreceptors were examined electrophysiologically in primates (monkey, baboon) and in sub‐primates (dog and rat) by recording from single units dissected from peripheral nerves.

Conduction failure in myelinated and non‐myelinated axons at low temperatures
1. The effects of low temperature on conduction in single myelinated and non‐myelinated axons of the feline saphenous nerve were examined and compared. Nerves were cooled by a conventional thermode,Expand

Correlative physiological and morphological studies of rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors in cat's glabrous skin.
1. A total of fifty‐four mechanoreceptor afferent units with fast conducting axons in the tibial nerve innervating the glabrous skin of the hind leg were isolated in anaesthetized cats. 2. Twenty‐sixExpand

Functional characteristics of mechanoreceptors in sinus hair follicles of the cat
1. The discharge of impulses in afferent fibres dissected from the infraorbital and ulnar nerves of anaesthetized cats was recorded during controlled movements of the maxillary and carpal sinus hairs.

Morphology of cutaneous receptors.
This and the following three chapters will deal with the morphological and physiological characteristics of cutaneous, joint and tendon receptors that have been identified in vertebrates. A recentExpand
