Product Description

Why do we react to the world the way we do? And how is it that the physically adventurous young person whose greatest passion was riding the tallest roller coaster somehow grew into an adult whose stomach churns at the mere thought of such a ride? The answer, of course, is that though the physical world we occupy may be identical, the reality we experience is very different. Our sensory systems can be altered over time, their acuity changing in response to aging or injury, life experiences, evolving personalities, and other factors. And in this series of 24 eye-opening lectures, acclaimed teacher and psychologist Professor Francis Colavita of the University of Pittsburgh gives you a bio-psychological perspective on both the way humans navigate and react to the world and an understanding of the ways in which that process is ever-changing. Rich in science, potent examples, and anecdotes, these gripping lectures explore subjects like how we see, hear, smell, taste, or touch; keep our balance, and understand exactly where we are in space. You'll learn about motor memory, the ways in which our bodies process pain, and even why our taste in food changes over time. It is a fascinating journey that will answer myriad questions you never knew you had.
