How many different kinds of sensory nerves are there present in our skin? I've heard of touch-lightly, touch-pressure, vibration, heat, cold, pain, itch, and tickle. Not to long ago I think a nerve for cuddling was found. Something called the CT Network. Also, are there any official names for these kinds of nerves?

It has a few of the nerves listed there. But I don't think it has them all. I've never heard of those though, thanx.

I searched "skin nerves". Try it
and you may come up with a more
comprehensive site.
