Special senses

The traditional five senses in human kind are the senses of vision, hearing, taste, and smell, and touch. In medicine, the special senses are the first four of these; touch is specifically excluded as a special sense. Instead, the various aspects of touch (pain, heat, pressure) are all categorized as somatic senses.
