Sensory impressions that arise as a result of changes/activity in the musculoskeletal and balance organs.
The proprioceptive sensory organs include:
1/ Muscle spindles
2/ tendon coils (Golgi's tendon organs)
3/ pressure and strain gauge adjacent to the joints
4/ balance organet on the right and left sides, i.e. the part of the membrane labyrinth of the inner ear comprising the semicircular canals (3pcs.) and the two membrane sacs (utriculus and sacculus).
5/ pain nerves connected to bones, joints and muscles that mediate so-called proprioceptive pain.
The proprioceptive flow of information is necessary for the brain, both consciously and unconsciously, to be able to:
1/ perceive and handle the arms, legs, torso, neck and head as a coherent unit (the feeling of being one body)
2/ determine if the head and the rest of the body change their speed and position in relation to the Earth's gravitational pull
3/ determine where in space/space the different body parts are located and how they move in relation to each other
4/ Perceive the power development in the different muscles
5/ check that the movement programmes under execution are actually being implemented as planned and, if necessary, trigger the necessary corrections.
