Sorry to come late to this. Are the slow neurons unmyelinated neurons as well as small diameter?

Sir, can Merkle's cells and tactile disks not create pain as well? Espcially with bed sores? 

In this webinar, Dr. Mobeen Syed discusses a critically important topic for the neurology students and providers. The sensory receptors in the skin. He discusses

  • Mechanoreceptors
  • Thermoreceptors
  • Nociceptors
  • Chemoreceptors
  • Electromagnetic receptors

The following concepts are discussed in detail:

  • Differential sensitivity
  • Modality
  • Labeled line principle

These somatic sensory receptor types are presented:

  • Free nerve endings
  • Expanded tip receptors
    • Merkel's discs
    • Ruffini's corpuscles
  • Hair receptors
  • Meisner's corpuscles
  • Pacinian corpuscles

The type of sensation and speed of transmission are discussed.
Receptor's operating model is discussed. The following concepts are presented:

  • Tonic receptors and their operating model.
  • Phasic receptors and their operating model.

Signal transduction is discussed. The model to relay the intensity of the sense is discussed as well.

In this video we will learn about :

1. Types of sensory receptors.

2. Differential sensitivity and modality of receptor.

3. Labeled line principle.

4. Somatic sensory nerve endings.

5. Tonic and phasic receptors.

6. Mechanism of signal transduction.

7. Phantom limb.
