Science Writer Kara Platoni on the Latest Developments in the Science of Sensory Perception
Sensory science is increasingly finding that we don’t perceive reality; we create it through perception. In her book We Have the Technology: How Biohackers, Foodies, Physicians, and Scientists Are Transforming Human Perception, One Sense at a Time science writer Kara Platoni explores the latest developments in the science of sensory perception.
Host Kathleen Stephenson interviews Kara Platoni about the researchers who are changing the way we experience the world, whether creating scents that stimulate the memories of Alzheimer’s patients or constructing virtual limbs that approximate a sense of touch.
