Why are mimosas shy?

Mimosa has a special substance called "actin", also known as "leaf occipital sensitizer", which is commonly found in animals. The leaf pillow is found at the base of the petiole and at the base of the leaflets of the compound leaves of Mimosa. Once the leaf is touched, the stimulus is transmitted to the base of the petiole and the leaf occipital, causing the leaflet to close.

The center of the leaf occipital has a large vascular bundle, which is surrounded by thin-walled tissue with many cellular spaces. When the vibration is transmitted to the leaf occipital, the upper part of the leaf occipital thin-walled cells in the cytosol, is discharged into the cell gap, so that the upper part of the leaf occipital cell expansion pressure is reduced, while the lower part of the thin-walled cell gap still maintains the original expansion pressure, resulting in the upright of the leaflet and the two leaflets closed up, or even the whole leaf hanging down
