Proprioception

Posted by on Mar 4, 2015 in Swavalamban Blog

Proprioception  is the ability to percieve stimuli rising within the body regarding the position,motion and equilibrium.  Even if a person is blindfolded ,he or she knows through the sense of proprioception that if an arm is above the head or hanging by the side of the body.
Proprioception is provided by proprioceptors embedded in skeletal straited muscles and in joints. The brain integrate information from the proprioception and from the vestibular system into its overall sense of body position,  movement and acceleration.
Proprioceptors consist of both sensory and motor nerves that send and receive the impulses to and from the central nervous system from  stimuli within the skin,  muscles, joint and tendons.  The impulses  transmit vital information such as  amount of tension in a given muscle and the relative position of a body part during a given movement.
