Answers

Proprioception (pronounced /propri.spn/ PRO-pree-o-SEP-shn), from Latin proprius, meaning "one's own" and perception) is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body.

The proprioceptive sense is believed to be composed of information from sensory neurons located in the inner ear, and in the stretch receptors located in the muscles and the joint-supporting ligaments.
