Nivelleren maakt gelukkig Een objectief wetenschapper kun je Richard Wilkinson niet noemen. Hij heeft de Equality Trust opgericht, die maatschappelijke gelijkheid propageert. Gelijkheid maakt namelijk gelukkig, vertelt Wilkinson aan wie het maar horen wil. Is hij bevooroordeeld?

New Insight into People Who Taste Words For most of us, the boundaries between our bodily senses are clear-cut and rigid. But for a few rare individuals, the demarcation between vision and hearing, or between taste and touch, are less solid, with one bleeding into the other. These people have a condition called "synesthesia," in which two or more of the senses are crossed. Some see colors when listening to music, while others associate tastes with shapes or words with colors. A very small number of synesthetes can "taste" words. A new study finds that individuals with this last form of synesthesia—called "lexical-gustatory" synesthesia—can taste a word before they ever speak it, and that the word's meaning, not its sound or spelling, is what triggers this taste sensation.
