    This was a decently interesting lecture series and an obvious follow up after listening to the lecturer's other series on vision It was a good overview but I felt like I came away with fewer new insights than I did with the prior one About the only interesting thing I recall learning is that bats are deaf to the freuency of their own voices their calls are so loud that they would uickly lose hearing at that freuency anyway and they don't hear their own voices directly but rather the echoes which have changed in pitchOne thing that struck me as a bit odd in the fist lecture the professor argues that humans have about 8 senses the usual 5 plus a sense of balance a sense of the body's position in space and interoception a sense of the internal state of the body Aside from sight which was covered in a whole other series it is this final sense that is given the least coverage In fact after mentioning it in the beginning it is never really brought up again which feels weird after he took the time to argue it into an elevated position as one of our eight senses or maybe nine if you count pain as separate from touch
