The newly-understood phenomenon of 'highly sensitive people'

Psychologists and researchers are increasingly coming to understand the idea that some people are more sensitive than others to things like noises, smells and upsetting situations. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen explore the condition of being a highly sensitive person with psychologist and author Ted Zeff, an expert on the topic.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
