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 brain’s 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 lover’s 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.

Lawrence D. Rosenblum, an award-winning Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside, is the recipient of multiple National Science Foundation and National Institute of Health grants for his research on lipreading and multimodal integration and a grant from the National Federation of the Blind for his research on the audibility of hybrid cars. Rosenblum's work has been featured in The Economist, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and on National Public Radio. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
