The Five Senses

The five senses are touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell. The nerves responsible with the input of information from outside can be found in your skin, mouth, eyes, ears, and nose.  The sense that is most used is sight. In addition to our primary senses, there are 20 more that scientists have discovered, like the sense that allows you to keep your balance.

We typically associate the sense of touch with our feet and hands, but it usually occurs throughout the whole body. There are more nerves in your hands and feet, but there are nerves all over your skin.

A few parts of your body have no nerves like your fingernails, toenails, and hair.
