Researchers at Duke University create a 'sixth sense'
By placing implant in rats' brains, the scientists trained the area of the brain used for touch to instead expand the rats' ability to see light, a breakthrough that could revolutionize broader studies on brain control and sensory abilities.
Human beings are born endowed with five senses, but now researchers at Duke University believe they have developed a sixth one: the ability to see infrared light that's not on the visible spectrum.
