Study Notes

Nerve Fibers and Sensations

  • Crude touch sensation is associated with A-beta nerve fibers.

Receptors and Sensations

  • Meissner's corpuscles are responsible for fine touch sensation.

Nerve Fibers and Sensations

  • Vibration sensation is associated with Pacinian corpuscles and A-beta nerve fibers.

Kinesthetic Sensation

  • Kinesthetic sensation is associated with A-alpha and A-beta nerve fibers.

Stereognosis

  • Merkel's discs and Meissner's corpuscles are responsible for stereognosis.

Pressure Sensation

  • Pressure sensation is associated with Merkel's discs and A-beta nerve fibers.

Crude Touch Sensation

  • Merkel's discs are responsible for sensing crude touch.

Fine Touch Sensation

  • A-beta nerve fibers are responsible for transmitting fine touch sensation.

Vibration Sensation

  • Pacinian corpuscles are responsible for sensing vibration.
