Abstract

Sensory organs in the mammalian skin may be classified into the following types: [1] free nerve endings, [2] palisade nerve endings around hair follicles,[3]Merkel cells and associated axons, and [4] encapsulated nerve endings, for example Mcissner corpuscles and Paccinian corpuscles. Common characteristics of sensory afferent endings are presence of a large number of mitochondria in the nerve terminals. Physiological significance of synaptic vesicle-like small vesicles found in the endinggs has been discussed.
