In this in-depth look at the science that explains the hidden powers of the five senses and how to harness their potential, Lawrence D. Rosenblum explores abilities that few of us know we have. Drawing on insights into the brain's neuroplasticity and integrative powers, including findings from his own research, Rosenblum examines how the brain uses subtle information to apprehend the world. A blind person can "see" through bat-like echolocation; wine connoisseurs can taste the vintage of an obscure wine; pheromones can signal a lover's compatibility and an undetected odour can influence our behaviour. Rosenblum takes us from a "beep" ballgame where blind players swing at buzzing balls to a pitch-black restaurant where diners experience taste without the aid of sight, not only illuminating the science behind our sensory powers, but also demonstrating how awareness of our sensory skills can enhance and hone their power.
