Answer:

Skin and its appendages are part of integumentary system where specialised sensory nerve ends are present. These sensory ends receive stimuli and send impulses through sensory neuron to CNS.

Explanation:

We feel sensation of pain, pressure, temperature changes, etc because of association of nervous system with integumentary system.

There are names for specialised nerve ends which act as receptors:
Pacinian Corpuscle, Ruffini's end organ, Merkel's disc, Meissner's corpuscle, Krause's end bulb.
