Answer: 
Pacinian corpuscles: These are single afferent nerve fibre containing mechanoceptors present in the skin or mucousmembrane and respond to pressure and mechanical stimulus causing deformation of corpuscles. It is surrounded by several concentric capsules of connective tissue with viscous gel between them. REF:http://www.neuro.uu.se/fysiologi/gu/nbb/lectures/Pacini.html
