More recently they have been shown to express mas‐related G protein‐coupled receptor D (MRGD) (Zylka, Rice and Anderson, 2005). These afferents innervate the skin and terminate more superficially than cutaneous peptidergic fibres. Their central arbors occupy a narrow band in the middle part of lamina II. Central terminations of low threshold mechanoreceptors Studies of intra‐axonally injected Aβ afferents have shown that these terminate in the deep laminae, with specific patterns for the various types of tactile and hair follicle afferent.
