An experiment with a shark blindness is one of the best examples of the cognitive dissonance that surrounds the question of why there is such a thing as shark blindness.
It’s also one of my favourite.
To find out why, I spoke to neuroscientist and shark expert James Sørensen, who is co-author of the forthcoming book, How Sharks Think.
I also interviewed Dr. John C. Tye, director of the Center for Neuroethics at Duke University, about the shark blindness paradox.
This is part one of a two-part series.
