Book launch - 'Embodied: The psychology of physical sensation'

At an event marking the launch of his new book Professor Chris Eccleston takes us on a journey through the ten neglected senses of the body (balance, movement, pressure, breathing, fatigue, pain, itch, temperature, appetite, and expulsion), and explores how these senses both enable and limit our experience.
