corpuscle

any small mass or body.

blood c's
formed elements in the blood, i.e. erythrocytes and leukocytes.
bulbous corpuscle
temperature-sensitive nerve endorgan.
colostrum c's
large rounded bodies in colostrum, containing droplets of fat and sometimes a nucleus.
compound granular corpuscle
genital corpuscle
pressure receptor nerve-endings in the penis and clitoris.
Golgi-Mazzoni corpuscle
probably a pressure receptor; occur in hairless skin and associated mucosae, glans penis, foot pad of carnivores, hoof connective tissue.
corpuscle of Grandry
in the dermis of a duck's bill. See also corpuscle of Herbst (below).
corpuscle of Herbst
located in the dermis of the duck's bill these corpuscles are extremely sensitive to vibration.
lamellar corpuscle
pressure-sensitive nerve-endings. Called also Ruffini corpuscle.
malpighian corpuscle
see renal corpuscle (below).
Meissner corpuscle
touch-sensitive nerve receptors.
meniscoid corpuscle
touch-sensitive nerve endorgan.
pacinian c's
Purkinje's c's
large, branched nerve cells composing the middle layer of the cortex of the cerebellum.
red blood corpuscle
erythrocyte.
renal corpuscle
a tuft of capillaries enveloped by the dilated end of a renal tubule. Constitutes the beginning of the structural unit of the kidney (nephron). Called also malpighian corpuscle.
Ruffini corpuscle
see lamellar corpuscle (above).
tactile c's
medium-sized encapsulated nerve endings in the skin; called also tactile papillae.
white blood corpuscle
leukocyte.
