Abstract:

Experiments were conducted at 25 C on Pachinian corpuscles, obtained from mesentery of cat. One group nerve receptors control was maintained for 15 min. in a Krebs-Henseleit solution, after which it was fixed, another after 10- minute rest underwent vibration stimulation with a frequency of 120 Hz and the force of 150 dynes. The Results show transverse section of nerve end of control receptor. Nerve end has a section of elliptic form, its longitudinal axis is oriented in the direction of fissure in the internal bulb. The plasmatic membrane of nerve end forms the folds, which convert into the large apophyses near the fissure .
