This is another great video provided by Brain Highways introducing the proprioceptive system. The funny thing about the proprioceptive sense is that when it is diminished or lost, no one
- parent or child - realizes it because it is the one sense that is mostly subconscious. We are much more familiar and consciously aware of the other senses such as vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Proprioception, however, is more essential to the brain because it is the only sense that is constant working very closely with the vestibular system , which also is mostly subconscious.
