Wine drinkers are praising science after a recent study by neuroscientist Gordon Shepherd!
He discovered that drinking wine activates more grey matter in the brain than solving maths equations or listening to music.
The scientist says that drinking wine is a process in which many different elements need to be considered, such as how you sip it, how your tongue moves the wine around your mouth, and how your nose responds to the aroma.
Speaking to the National Public Radio, Shepherd explained that his research extends beyond analysing the wine to focusing on the drinkers themselves.
“You don’t just put wine in your mouth and leave it there,” he said.
“You move it about and then swallow it, which is a very complex motor act.”
