This is the most common myth taught to children since early ages that we have five senses. Which means our brain can interpret five types of signals i.e. sight, smell, touch, sound and taste. But this myth has been busted by the discovery that our brain can actually sense 9 to 20 different types of signals: surprising isnt it?? Scientist have expanded the theory to include that our bodies have some other senses as well such as sense of equilibrium and speed, nociception to feel pain, proprioception to sense positioning, thermoception for sensing temperature etc. the list also includes hunger, itching sense of time, sense of stomach need, nature call and a lot more.
