The Five Senses

All About the Eye


Are the most complex organs you possess

except for your brain.


Are composed of more than two million
working parts.
Can instantaneously set in motion
hundreds of muscles and organs in your
body.
Eyes are your most precious sense

All About the Nose

No two people smell the same odor the same


way. In other words, a rose may smell sweeter to
some people than to others.
The average human being is able to recognize
approximately 10,000 different odors.
Our sense of taste is greatly influenced by our
sense of smell.
Your sense of smell is least acute in the
morning; our ability to perceive odors increases
as the day wears on.

All About the Ear


In the course of hearing, sound waves

enter the auditory canal and strike the


eardrum, causing it to vibrate.
Sounds that are 85 decibels or louder
such as heavy traffic, a noisy restaurant, a
screaming child, or a lawn mower can
cause hearing damage
Once you have lost your hearing its gone!

All About the Tongue

There are approximately 9,000 taste buds on the


tongue.
Your tastes will change as you get older. Your
taste buds will become less sensitive.
The appearance of the tongue is often an
indication of body health; a pinkish-red color is
normal. In impairment of the digestion and in
certain feverish diseases, a yellowish coating
forms.
Taste is the weakest of the five senses.
Menu

All About Touch

While your other four senses (sight, hearing, smell, and


taste) are located in specific parts of the body, your
sense of touch is found all over.
Your sense of touch originates in the bottom layer of your
skin called the dermis.
The nerve endings in your skin can tell you if something
is hot or cold.
Pain receptors are probably the most important for your
safety because they can protect you by warning your
brain that your body is hurt!
There are about 100 touch receptors in each of your
fingertips.
