Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch
- There are other senses, such as equilibrioception, proprioception, thermoception, and nociception. But, when "five senses" is said, the others simply may be unknown or irrelevant for the context. Some of them (the feeling of pain or temperature, for temperature) are commonly, but incorrectly, considered varieties of touch.
