[[Law of specific nerve energies]] --> Muller's law

Each type of sensory nerve ending, however stimulated (electrically, mechanically, etc.), gives rise to its own specific sensation; moreover, each type of sensation depends not upon any special character of the different nerves but upon the part of the brain in which their fibres terminate.

Synonym: [[law of Specific nerve energies]].
