PROPRIOCEPTION

Also called proprioceptive sense, proprioception is the sense of body movement and position. This sense come from stimulation of proproceptors in the muscle, tendons and joints in the skeletal/muscular system and also the vestibular receptors in the inner ear. Even without visual clues, Proprioception enables the body to determine its spatial orientation.
