Proprioception: Stand strong, stand still
09.09.2016
Have you ever wondered why the police will test sobriety by asking people to touch their nose with eyes closed? Well, there is a scientific reason for that, which is called “proprioception”. This term comes from two Latin words: proprius, which means one’s own/individual, and capio, from the verb capere which means grasp/sense. The combination of the two forms “proprioception”, basically the sense of the body in space: its position, movement, and acceleration.
