It appears that humans also hear with their eyes and skin…..

In a piece in the Observatory section of the New York Times, Henry Fountain writes that humans actually have the ability to use everything they have at their disposal to hear….and this maybe an innate sense….

……from the study done by  Bryan Gick and Donald Derrick of the University of British Columbia…..

Amazing!……
