  • Touch perception is important in most living organisms and extremely sensitive detection systems have evolved to meet this need. Pacinian corpuscles (PCs) are primary mechanoreceptors. In the human, they are found in the skin (where they act as touch receptors), in the joints, in muscles and in many organs (where they act as motion sensors). The purpose of the work described in this thesis is to investigate how the performance of the PC is achieved, with reference to structure, mechanical… CONTINUE READING
