You may think there are only 5 senses. But there are actually two more senses.

  1. Touch
  2. Hearing
  3. Sight
  4. Taste
  5. Smell
  6. Vestibular
  7. Proprioception

#6 Vestibular: The balance and movement sense. It helps with riding a bike or sliding down a slide.

#7 Proprioception: The body sense. It helps with knowing where a body part is without looking at it.

The 7 senses help us “make sense” of the world around us, which is known as sensory integration/processing. Stay tuned for more videos about each sense.
