Summary note
"Complex and crucially important, the senses collect the massive amount of information we need to navigate daily life, and serve as a filter between our inner selves and the larger world. But the science of how the senses work has been little understood - until now." "New research is rapidly uncovering fascinating insights into how the brain processes sensory information. It's not simply a matter of the brain controlling the senses; the senses actually stimulate brain development. For example, the brain's sound-processing centers mature properly only when sound impulses trigger them to do so - which is why cochlear implants are best used before the age of three. Brain Sense reveals this and a wealth of findings on how the brain and senses interact, as it examines each of the five major senses: touch, smell, taste, vision, and hearing."--BOOK JACKET.
