7 senses

I found out that most people in my field think of the body as having 7 senses.  Yes sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. But, also proprioception and vestibular.  Proprioception being able to determine where your body parts are in space and vestibular the feeling of balance.  You may have heard of vestibular before in relation to pilots who get screwed around in the air because the fluid in their ears became disoriented.   That’s all to do with the vestibular sense.   Cool, huh?
