Mechanoreceptor Diagram

There are so many articles and studies about tactile perception… and so few that are simple enough to actually understand!

This article is pretty cerebral – but there is a very interesting diagram from the article. As it turns out, there is a lot going on inside our fingertips!

I have enjoyed opportunities to work in the medical device field. I have fulfilled various roles during my relatively short career: Quality Assurance, Sales, Management, Supervisory Roles, and Training. I really like my job, but I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
