The number of tactile corpuscles per square millimeter of human skin on the fingertips drops fourfold [ clarification needed ] between the ages of 12 and A tactile papilla seen from above so as to show its transverse section. Articles needing additional references corpusculoa August All articles needing additional references Wikipedia articles needing clarification from August All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from December Wikipedia articles with TH identifiers.

Their Nerve Supply and Significance”. If the stimulus is removed, the corpuscle regains its shape and while doing so i.

They are sensitive to shape and textural changes in exploratory and discriminatory touch. Tactile corpuscle Papilla of the hand, magnified times.

Its two nerve fibers axons running with spiral coils around the tactile corpuscle. August Learn how and when to remove this template message. Tactile corpuscles are encapsulated unmyelinated nerve endings, which consist of flattened supportive cells arranged as horizontal lamellae surrounded by a connective tissue capsule.


The rate at which they are lost correlates well with the age-related loss in touch sensitivity for small probes. Tactile corpuscles are rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors. Retrieved 7 May Views Read Edit View history. This page was corpusuclos edited on 27 Decemberat Free nerve ending Nociceptors.

Their acute sensitivity provides the neural basis for reading Braille text. Rice 15 September The Anatomical Record Part A: Proceedings of the Staff Meetings of the Mayo Clinic.

Outer layer of the tactile body, with nuclei.

Any physical deformation of the corpuscle will cause sodium ions to enter it, creating an action potential in the corpuscle’s nerve fiber. Since they are rapidly adapting or phasicthe action potentials generated quickly decrease and eventually mdissner this is the reason one stops “feeling” one’s clothes. Small nerve of the papilla, with neurolemma. In cofpusculos projects Wikimedia Commons. They are most concentrated in thick hairless skin, especially at the finger pads.

They are rapidly adaptive receptors. In particular, they have their highest sensitivity lowest threshold when sensing vibrations between 10 and 50 Hertz. Please help improve this section by adding citations to meidsner sources. Also, tactile corpuscles do not detect noxious stimuli ; this is signaled exclusively by free nerve endings.

Apparent termination of one of these fibers. Feelings of deep pressure from a poke, for instance are generated from lamellar corpuscles the only other type of meissneer tactile mechanoreceptorwhich are located deeper in the dermis, and some free nerve endings.

Retrieved 30 January Tactile corpuscles or Meissner’s corpuscles ; discovered by anatomist Georg Meissner — and Rudolf Wagner [1] are a type of mechanoreceptor.

The Journal of Cell Biology. They are distributed on various areas of the skinbut concentrated in areas especially sensitive to light touch, such as the fingers and lips.

Tactile corpuscle

Papilla of the hand, magnified times. Exploring the Brain 4th ed. 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.
