Is there a relationship between colour and taste? We look at two studies that have a bearing on this question.
Some studies show that sensory neurons in the olfactory system in people over 60 may
show responses to odour that make it difficult to identify specific smells. This can create issues with identifying dangerous substances and promoting good nutrition.
The ability to recognize and remember faces is best when we are aged 30-34 - ten years
later than most of our other mental abilities.
Caucasians and Asians examine faces in different ways
Hearing messages embedded in meaningless noise could be an early
sign of schizophrenia.
Two recent studies offer insight into how individuals
perceive their own bodies and a possible explanation for out-of-body experiences.
A study has found significant
parallels between sophisticated use of facial whiskers by rats and fingertips by humans.
Recent technological advances in facial composite
systems have failed to improve identification and apprehension of criminal suspects.
