Social psychology: does cleanliness affect perception? 105science
University of Cambridge psychology PhD student, Dario Krpan, discusses how the state of our body affects how we perceive things. We consider how feeling more clean might harshen our judgement, and how feeling pious might make us feel more clean. We also play the Science Fact or Fiction game, answer your question about why bees buzz, and catch you up on Cambridge news and science talks.
Science fact or fiction?
