The skin is a vast sentient surface, attuned to numerous environmental changes. Although it was first viewed as representing only the fifth sense, i. e., touch, the last century of research has disclosed that the skin is a far more complex sensory receptor. This area of study has long been an actively disputative one, and indeed within the year critical essays have challenged all previously held concepts of both the form and the function of sensory receptors in the skin of man. It is our… Expand
