I've had an argument with a college of mine. 
The question is as follows. Is it possible that our children have the
ability to se small nuances in the grey scale, that we as parents cant se.
In other words. Can our children have a more advanced occipital lobe than
we have. And is this alleged development caused by a much higher degree of
visual stimulation (through TV, movies etc), or can this difference be
caused by cultural, or sociale factors?
