Caption: Light microscopy of human thick skin showing several small and large Pacinian corpuscles in the dermis. Resembling a cut onion when viewed in sections, the corpuscles are special sensory nerve receptors that detect vibration and compression. Each receptor has a central nerve fiber surrounded by many layers of membranes and fluid spaces. Magnification x40 when printed at width 10 cm.
