See What Im Saying: The Extraordinary Powers of Our Five Senses by Lawrence D. Rosenblum

An in-depth look at the science that explains the hidden powers of the five senses and how to harness their potential.University of California psychologist and researcher Lawrence D. Rosenblum explores the astonishing abilities of the five senses, abilities few of us even know we have. Drawing on groundbreaking insights into the brains neuroplasticity and integrative powers, including findings from his own research, Rosenblum examines how the brain uses the subtlest information to apprehend the world. A blind person, for example, can see through batlike echolocation; wine connoisseurs can actually taste the vintage of an obscure wine; pheromones can signal a lovers compatibility; and an undetected odor can influence our behavior. Rosenblum takes us from the beep baseball fields 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.
