Mechanical transmission in a Pacinian corpuscle. An analysis and a theory.

Abstract

1. An analysis is made of the transmission of mechanical forces through the Pacinian corpuscle. In particular, forces are analysed which produce pressure differences at the centre of the corpuscle and lead to excitation of the sensory nerve ending.2. The main structural elements in force transmission through the corpuscle are the lamellae, their… (More)
