Sensehacking : How to Use the Power of Your Senses for Happier, Healthier Living Hardback


The world expert in multisensory perception on the remarkable ways we can use our senses to lead happier, healthier, richer livesHow can the furniture in your home affect your wellbeing?

What colour clothing will help you play sport better? And what changes to your office can improve your performance at work?

In this revelatory book, pioneering (and entertaining) Oxford professor Charles Spence shows how our senses change how we think and feel, and how by 'hacking' them we can reduce stress, become more productive and be happier. We like to think of ourselves as rational beings, and yet two over-indexing predictors of what makes people buy cars are the sound of tapping the dashboard and the horn, and we perform better at sport if we imagine what colour our opponents will be wearing.

By understanding our senses, we can take greater control of our lives. Sensehacking explores how the senses are stimulated in nature, at home, in the workplace and at play.

From the emerging science of sensory overload to technology that will change the way we perceive the world, Spence uses cutting-edge science to show how the senses interact and affect our minds and our actions.
