If you lose one sense, the others get stronger 💪🏻

If one sense is lost, the areas of the brain normally devoted to handling that sensory information do not go unused, they get rewired and put to work processing other senses.


But what if the sense is not entirely gone, only part of it?


For instance, the ability to see one’s entire face interferes with your ability to identify said person


‘New’ (2013) research reveals that when facial features are difficult to make out, we readily use information about someone's body to identify them


If you work in an office, you know this to be true because you can hear Jeff walking down the hall from a mile away 🚶🏻‍♂️


Story time 📖


I was at the grocery today and the cashier had to check my ID

He looks back up at me, squints his eyes, and says “hmm… I don’t know”

Then… he pulls out a mini picture of a blue mask and places it over my ID picture 😷

I have not laughed in public in quite some time

This guy has jokes and made my day 😂


Happy Learning!!
