Caption: Illustration of the sense of touch mechanism in the spinal cord and the brain. Neural receptors in the skin transfer sensations of touch to bi-polar neurons in the peripheral nerve fibers (pink cells). The pink cells then relay that information through neurons in the spinal cord, and ultimately through the cerebral cortex of the brain. Overstimulation can lead to cell destruction, shown here (blue).
