With five distinct senses that we use every minute of each day, humans are talented species. These senses help us identify what is real and what is not. Our brains glean information about the world around us from these senses. They are also responsible for our emotions. These five senses, namely—sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing, send messages to our brain that it uses to understand the environment.

The brain communicates with these senses at the same time effortlessly.
