Humans have five basic sense organs: ears, eyes, nose, skin, tongue. These organs help us to perceive the world - we see with our eyes, we smell with our noses, we listen with our ears, we taste with our tongue and we touch with our skin. When we discuss human sensitivity, we should also consider the level of sensitivity of our basic sense organs.
