Details: Why do we dream?
Are coincidences meaningful?
What do first impressions tell us?

Our senses help us see, hear, feel, smell and taste the world around us. Yet each of our experiences is different. Why is that? What influences our perceptions and, ultimately, the way we interact with the world? If one of our senses is damaged, will our brains compensate in some way? How can scientists tap into technology and extend our sensory capabilities? What about animal "super" senses? Can dogs sniff out diseases in people, and do elephants really know when an earthquake's about to occur?

Phenomena:  Secrets of the Senses explores these fascinating mysteries and more -- surveying sensory worlds from a perspective sure to make your mind tingle!
