Proprioception is the process by which the body can vary muscle contraction in immediate response to incoming information regarding external forces, by utilizing stretch receptors in the muscles to keep track of the joint position in the body. Proprioception allows us to learn new motor skills, it is a key component in muscle memory and hand-eye coordination and training can vastly improve this sense. To ensure movements are fast, precise and co-ordinated the nervous system must constantly receive sensory information to be able to adjust and correct movements. The nervous system achieves this mainly through the cerebellum, which receives sensory information about positions of the joints and body from the proprioceptors. It is a common mistake to assume that everybody has the same level of proprioceptive ability.
