Touch Receptors: Touch receptors are a group of sensory receptors that give us the sensations of touch and react to pressure, distortion, movement, and/or vibration. There are four main types of Touch receptors, which are located in the skin and deeper tissues. They include Pacinian corpuscles, Ruffini corpuscles, Meissner's corpuscles and Merkel's disks. Other Touch receptors include those found in the ear, which pick up and transform air pressure waves into sound. Touch receptors are a part of the sensory nervous system and pick up and relay sensations to the peripheral nervous system, which connects to the central nervous system and to the brain.
