45 Whereas the Ruffini endings respond to stretch, the Pacinian endings respond to compressive and tensile forces. These peripheral receptors and other encapsulated mechanoreceptors and free nerve endings are essentially biological transducers that have the unique ability to convert physical, chemical, and thermal energy into an action potential in the neuron associated with that particular receptor. 19 At the spinal cord level local reflexes ensue and the input is further modulated through descending cortical or brainstem tracts.
