Caption: Touch receptors. Light micrograph of a section through two Pacinian corpuscles (purple), a type of mechanoreceptor in the skin that is responsible for sensitivity to vibration and pressure. At the centre of the corpuscle is a single nerve ending (dark purple), which is surrounded by concentric rings of connective tissue. Magnification: x60 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
