BIO 207 Week 8 Critical Thinking Exercise
For the Week 8 Critical Thinking Exercise, you will answer the following questions using your critical thinking and reasoning skills:
1. You have probably heard that when a person loses their vision, their other senses compensate, for example, the sense of hearing increases. Is there any scientific evidence to back this up, or is this just a myth? Explain.
2. A lot of people who have lost the sense of smell also say that they lose some of their sense of taste. Why do you think there is a link between taste and smell, looking at it anatomically?
3. You walk into the kitchen and are overcome with the smell of freshly baked pie. A few minutes later your friend walks in and says “MMM, that pie smells amazing!” You notice that you can no longer smell the pie after being in the kitchen for a while. Explain this phenomenon.
