Deep receptor


Deep receptor

A deep receptor is an element of the nervous system that is devoted to the reception of "deep" sensibility (as opposed to tactile sensibility). A deep receptor furnishes information of what is happening in muscle, tendons and joints. They thus participate in proprioception.
