What are the five senses in the human body?Twoll84 - 6 Answers
The "five senses," as mentioned previously, are smell, sight, taste, sound, and touch. However, there are a few other senses that are not considered as part of these main 5 but are equally important. These senses are prioprioception (awareness of your body position in space), balance, chronoception (the sense of time passing), as well as other touch-related senses mentioned next.
The sense "touch" is generally in reference to pressure, tickle, etc. while thermoception (hot, cold) and nociception (pain) are considered their own senses, but all can be combined together as one conglomerate sense of touch.
I'd expand on Lovesa12 to say that there are different types of taste because you have different types of taste buds (sweet, sour, etc) and many types of touch because you have different types of touch receptors (cold, hot, smooth, rough, pressure, tickle, itch, pain, vibrations, etc)
These are all good answers.
Just visualize what the human body can sense from top to bottom:
1) The eyes - sight
2) The nose - smell
3) The mouth and tongue - taste
4) The ears - hearing
5) The hands and feet - touch
The human body's five senses are:
touch (includes pain and temperature)
