Have you ever wondered why you remember color images and scenes so much better than those in black and white? Why certain odors evoke vivid memories? The answers to those questions and many more lie in the way our brains interpret and process the sights, smells, tastes, and touches that make up our lives. In my book Brain Sense I explore brain function and the senses. I write on that same topic in my Brain Sense blog.
