SCI­ENCE DIS­AGREE ON STA­TUS OF DÉJÀ VU

Science Illustrated - - SENSES -

Sci­en­tists dis­agree about how many senses we have. Some be­lieve that déjà vu – the feel­ing of hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced some­thing be­fore – is a sense, whereas oth­ers say that "agency" – the sense of own­er­ship of your own de­ci­sions – is also a sense. 12 senses are widely recog­nised:

1. Sense of smell

2. Sense of vi­sion

3. Sense of hear­ing

4. Sense of taste

5. Sense of touch

6. Sense of bal­ance

7. Sense of time

8. Kinaesthetic sense

9. Sense of itch

10. Tem­per­a­ture sense

11. Sense of pain

12. Sense of hunger/ full­ness
