The bodies five senses cross signals sending out a myriad of responses that result in sounds having tastes and words having colors. Synesthesia is a product of signals crossing in response to stimulation from the environment leading to automatic, involuntary and unusual experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway (Psychology Today, 2017).

    muscle temperatures of the shark are as much as 10 oC warmer than the water that it swims in. This confirms that a system of large retia mirabilia in the circulatory system function as heat exchangers. (2) The shark does not thermoregulate and muscle temperature changes slowly as water temperature changes. Because of these heat changes the shark can maintain itself for more than a month on a single large meal. Speed of locomotion plays an important role in an animal’s biology and ecology and…

    In conclusion this investigation did prove its hypothesis that If 0-20 year olds, 20-40 years old, 40-60 years old and 60+ year old are all tested then the youngest age group of 0-20s year old will have the higher timed results than the eldest age group 60+ year olds because age affects balance related senses such as vestibular system. The vestibular cells die with age and the cerebellum cells can also be affected by age and drugs for arthritic pain. The results showed that the highest average…
