Touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight - the human body's five major senses. They are senses that have evolved independently over millions of years but are brought together by our marvelous central nervous system into the most refined way of interacting with the environment of any species on the planet. Join Dr. Mark Reisman as he provides you with a unique look at the anatomy and physiology of each of these sensory systems and shows how the brain uses them to produce what we call being human.
Shot in HD, using the latest in 3-D graphics, medical imaging and cadaver specimens, see the human body's sensory system revealed in ways never seen before.
