You Ask! We Count!

Number of touch receptors

How many touch receptors are there?

About 100 in each fingertip

It is important to know that people have so many pain nerve endings.  Keep in mind that the least sensitive part of our body is represented by the middle of our back.  Needless to say, the most sensitive areas of our body are represented by our hands, lips, face, neck, tongue, feet and fingertips.  It is interesting to know that there are about 100 touch receptors in each of our fingertips.  This is definitely something.
