PROPRIOCEPTION

66

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.
