Caption

Light micrograph of a section through human skin, featuring the layers of the epidermis (red) and underlying dermis (blue). Prominent within the dermis are two Pacinian corpuscles, seen in transverse sections. These are sensory organs responsive to pressure or coarse touch, vibration and tension, and are found in the deeper layers of the skin, ligaments and joint capusles, serous membranes, mesenteries, some viscera and in some erogenous areas. The onion-like corpuscle consists of concentric layers of cells, fluid & connective tissue fibres which increase in density towards the single nerve fibre that lies at its core. Magnification: x125 at 6x7cm size.
