Five MORE neural systems which impact Sensory Dysfunction:
- Equilibrioception – sense of balance or vestibular sense
- Thermoception –temperature different
- Temporal - sense of time
- Nociciption – sensation of pain
- Proprioception and Kinesthesia –orientation and motion of one’s limbs and body in space
