One of the human senses. Allows us to perceive our body movement, position, and the coordinated actions of our body parts, and is stimulated by motion such as stretching, pushing, pulling, climbing, and muscle tensing. It is believed that movement activating this sense has an organizing and regulating effect on the body and brain. Proprioceptive input, at varying levels of intensity, can be upregulating for someone in a low arousal state, downregulating for someone in a high arousal state, and can lead to an overall increased sense of agency.
