New simulator for the Receptor potential in the Pacinian corpuscle

This new simulator allows exploring the changes in the receptor potential as a function of the intensity of applied pressure in an interactive way.

The purpose of the simulator is to allow experiential learning of this concept and to serve as a technological tool that will hopefully increase students’ engagement.
