Our bodies are given a number of different organs that provide us with important sensory information about our world. The 5 sense that we are given are:

• Hearing

• Sight

• Touch

• Taste

• Smell

Each of these senses is important in providing our brains with sensory data that the brain then uses to develop responses to the environment. For example, if your sense of touch tells you that you are touching an extremely hot frying pan, your brain will send a signal to your body to pull your hand back and prevent serious injury. If your sense of sight tells you that there is a car coming towards you at a high speed, your brain will signal to your body to jump out of the way. Our senses are vital evolutionary tools that protect us.
