In life, it seems like there are some debates that are simply unsolvable. If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? What came first, the chicken or the egg? Does wine taste better when bottled with a cork or screw cap?
Luckily, at least as it pertains to the latter question, there might soon actually be a definitive answer, thanks to neuroscience. A team of researchers with Oxford University in collaboration with the Portuguese Cork Association are going to subject individuals to a brain scan while they sip on different wines. It's all part of an effort to determine if there is a neurological preference for one type of wine storage method over the other, reports Phys.org.
