The Effect of Color on Flavor Perception Joseph Puchala, Amy Humphrey, Laura Runyan, and Travis Williams Abstract Human beings depend on their five senses to alert themselves of the world and to allow interaction with the sources of the sensed inputs. However during the transmission and integration of senses the perception of the sense can be altered. The purpose of this experiment is to explore the affects of visual interference with the perception of taste. Subjects in this experiment will be given vanilla flavored yogurt colored in a contradictory fashion to determine if the visual cues affect the interpretation of taste.
Showing of 6 next show all In my opinion this was a great book to introduce the topic of racial segregation to children. This is because it lightly touches upon segregation in s without making it a heavy topic. The author Matt Faulkner does this by using effective language, descriptive illustrations, and pushing his readers to think about tough historical moments.
Faulkner uses language that an individual from the country in the s would use. The illustrations also enhance the story because it provides a setting for the story without having the author tell us.
For example, a picture in the book shows a tiny house, with trees and dirt surrounding it. This gives the clue that they are not living in a city or right next to someone else. When one of the characters comes back from the city, she gloats about seeing a water fountain with colored water.
Naturally curious, the other characters have to go see this fountain and all the beautiful colors that will come out. Towards the end, the characters find out that the water fountain spilled out normal clear water. So they were confused as to why it said color and why they could not drink from it.
The illustrations were great, extremely vivid and historically accurate. Such as the sign over the water fountain that said colored. The main characters are very believable, two young children who hear about colored water. The illustrations were absolutely beautiful. They were definitely key to understanding the time this book is set.
Many times in the pages, the reader sees the tension the Civil Rights Movement brought on. The two kids in search of a water fountain of many different colors is juxtaposed against the backdrop of a Civil Rights protest and police brutality.
This is definitely a good book if a young reader wants to learn more about a certain time period. By reading the text and looking at the picture the reader will get a better sense of what segregation and the Civil Rights Movement was like.
I really enjoyed reading about the two kids thinking that colored water was just that: It was interesting to read about their journey to finding the water fountain of colored water and their realization that it was not "colored water," it was a part of segregation.
This books is a great way to explain to someone what race, prejudice, and segregation are. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone.A taste of colored water The story is about these caucasian kids that want to have a drink from something called the colored water fountain because they thought that the water would be different colors.
I had been expecting an earthy or metallic flavor, but the water had no noticeable taste. Had I been blindfolded, I would have said that it was plain old water. After some research, I have concluded that this product is no more than fancy colored mineral water.
