  • 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 recent historical review of the morphology of cutaneous receptors was given by Munger (1971) in Chapter 17, Volume I of this Handbook and the present morphological account is largely restricted to those receptors which have been studied in detail both electrophysiologically and electron microscopically.
