Light microscopy of human skin showing several Pacinian corpuscles located in the dermis. Resembling a sliced onion due to the concentric membranes and fluid spaces that surround a central axon the Pacinian corpuscle is a sensory neural receptor that detects vibrations and compression. They are abundant in the fingers, palm of the hand, soles of the foot and toes but may also be found in the gut mesenteries and around joints. Magnification x13 when printed at 10cm.
