Golgi organ Muscle spindle Intrafusal muscle fiber Nuclear chain fiber Nuclear bag fiber. Tactile corpuscles or Meissner’s corpuscles ; discovered by anatomist Georg Meissner — and Rudolf Wagner [1] are a type of mechanoreceptor. Tactile corpuscles are rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors.

Tactile corpuscles are encapsulated unmyelinated nerve endings, meissnrr consist of flattened supportive cells arranged as horizontal lamellae surrounded by a connective tissue capsule.

The Anatomical Record Part A: Since they are rapidly adapting or phasicthe action potentials generated quickly decrease and eventually cease this is meisener reason one stops “feeling” one’s clothes. The number of tactile corpuscles per square millimeter of human skin on the fingertips drops fourfold [ clarification needed ] between the ages of 12 and Any physical deformation of the corpuscle will cause sodium ions to enter it, creating an action potential in the corpuscle’s nerve fiber.

Outer layer of the tactile body, with nuclei. Because of their superficial location in the dermisthese corpuscles are particularly sensitive to touch and vibrations, but for the same reasons, they are limited in their detection because they can only signal that something is touching the skin. Side view of a papilla of the hand.

Retrieved 30 January Retrieved 7 May Its two nerve fibers axons running with spiral coils around the tactile corpuscle.

The rate at which they are lost correlates well with the age-related loss in touch sensitivity for small probes. Discoveries in Molecular, Cellular, and Evolutionary Biology. In particular, they have their highest sensitivity lowest threshold when sensing vibrations between 10 and 50 Hertz.

Exploring the Brain 4th ed. Free nerve ending Nociceptors. Feelings of deep pressure from a poke, for instance are generated from lamellar corpuscles the only other type of phasic tactile mechanoreceptorwhich are located deeper in the dermis, and some free nerve endings.

This page was last edited on 27 Decemberat Also, tactile corpuscles do not detect noxious stimuli ; this is signaled exclusively by free nerve endings. Mmeissner are distributed on various areas of the skinbut concentrated in areas especially sensitive to light touch, such as the fingers and lips. Their acute sensitivity provides the neural basis for reading Braille text.
