Rob DeSalle, curator at the American Museum of Natural History and professor at the Richard Gilder Graduate School, is the author of Our Senses: An Immersive Experience. He reveals not only how we see, hear, smell, touch and taste, but also how we maintain balance, feel pain and how these senses shape our perception of the world. He’ll also talk about hallucinations and other altered states, like the brain on LSD.
