Touch and body position

The senses provide you with information about your body's environment and its position in it. Your skin is able to sense touch, temperature and pain. Other receptor cells in your muscles and joints monitor the movement of your limbs. A special part of your ear helps with your sense of balance.

Your senses of touch, temperature and pain tell you about your body's environment.
