    There are five, ask any kid. There's another, an organ in you ear that let's you not fall over too much. And there are many more.

    In fact we like to Group them into:

    Visual
    Auditive
    Gustatoric
    Olphactoric
    Kinestethic

    Of couse the gustatoric sens is made up pf at least five different sensors (sweet, bitter, salty, sour, umami) and we have a lot of sensors for kinesthetics

    This does depend on who you ask. There are multiple scientific disciplines that are interested in the question, and we get to sort through the wreckage.
