From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 16 April 2017

The Five Senses

The five senses shape all our experience, but we still don't fully understand them. This episode, TED speakers explore how our brains make sense of sensation, and how our minds manufacture "reality."

Nicole Garneau: Are There More Than Five Basic Tastes?
Isaac Lidsky: How Can Going Blind Give You Vision?
