Henshaw, the Harry H. Rogers Professor of Mechanical Engineering and chair of the Department of Engineering here at the University of Tulsa. Professor Henshaw&#39;s new book, just out from Johns Hopkins University Press, is &quot;A Tour of the Senses: How Your Brain Interprets the World.&quot; This book offers an engaging and accessible (yet also scholarly and up-to-the-minute) consideration of the five senses --- taste, smell, touch, sight, and hearing --- and, moreover, of how these senses influence and affect one another.
