WHAT DOES KINESTHESIS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Proprioception

Proprioception, from Latin proprius, meaning "one's own", "individual" and perception, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement. It is provided by proprioceptors in skeletal striated muscles and in joints. It is distinguished from exteroception, by which one perceives the outside world, and interoception, by which one perceives pain, hunger, etc., and the movement of internal organs. The brain integrates information from proprioception and from the vestibular system into its overall sense of body position, movement, and acceleration. The word kinesthesia has been used inconsistently to refer either to proprioception alone or to the brain's integration of proprioceptive and vestibular inputs.
