Ever wondered how certain bees and rabbits can see UV light, while humans can only see a minor spectrum of colors? Or how other animals, such as whales and even some frogs communicate through high-frequency sonar?
Neuroscience has opened our eyes to the inner mechanisms and workings of sensation and perception. When I say sensation and perception, I mean the ways our eyes view colors, how our ears localize sound, how we grasp or throw objects, or feel the touch of a friends hand on our back.
By learning about how our brains perceive the world around us, we come one step closer to understanding our existence as a whole.
This blog offers you a way to stay up-to-date and informed on emerging Neuroscience theories and ideas, without having to take too much time out of your day. I will provide you with the new and interesting discoveries relating to animal sensation and perception, and with emerging news in the field of Neuroscience.
In the posts to follow, I will condense the most intriguing experiments, papers, and studies relating to animal sensation and perception in a concise and easy-to-read format. Additionally, I will offer my own insights, opinions, and examples in order to stimulate debate and new ideas, helping further develop my own theories and understanding of Neuroscience in the process.
