Sensory Functions of the Skin in Primates: With Special Reference to Man deals with sensory functions of the skin in primates, particularly humans.

The book presents scientific papers discussing a wide range of topics on sensory functions. The topics discussed include somato-sensory thalamic unit activities recorded in chronic awake animals; neuropharmacology of spinal cord reaction to noxious inputs; pain and thermoreception; and neural mechanisms for binocular depth discrimination.

Innocuous touch information is processed by both glabrous (hairless, A) and hairy skin (B).A) In glabrous skin, innocuous touch is mediated by four types of Merkel cell-neurite complex is in the basal layer of the epidermis and it consists of clusters of Merkel cells making synapse-like associations with enlarged Cited by: Fish skin is a complex organ composed of scales, pigments, mucus glands, blood vessels and connective tissues that serves multiple functions such as communication, sensory perception, locomotion Author: Diane Elliott. Our skin acts as the protective barrier between our internal body systems and the outside world. It’s not only the body’s largest sensory organ, it’s the largest organ –period! The skins “sense of touch” is what gives our brains a wealth of information about the natural environment, including temperature, humidity, and air pressure. The sensory system consists of the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin and their associated nerves. Six senses are commonly accepted as being accessible to humans and many animals: sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch and proprioception. That last sense is the ability to know where the parts of the body are in relation to one another at all times.
