How Our Skin Works

In our skin, there are a few special sense organs called receptor.

Receptor is the final dendrite’s branch from sensory neuron. Some receptors formed from a few dendrites and some has special cells. Each receptor only fit to certain stimulus. If a receptor is stimulated, there will be impulse transmitted along the dendrite towards central nervous system. There are five kinds of receptor in skin: special receptors for touch, pressure, pain, heat, and coldness.
