Caption: Touch sensor. Light micrograph of a section through a pacinian corpuscle. This receptor, found in the skin, some organs (for example the pancreas) and near joints, is sensitive to touch and vibration. It consists of many concentric layers of connective tissue, separated by a gelatinous substance, and a central fluid-filled cavity containing a single nerve ending. Touch and vibration are detected as deformations in the shape of the corpuscle.
