Proprioception is your sense of your body’s position in space, and without it you wouldn’t be able to walk or scratch your nose with your eyes closed. Learn more about your “sixth sense” in this video created by UCSD graduate student Alison Caldwell and her husband, Micah Caldwell. The video took third place in the 2015 Brain Awareness Video Contest.
