After the Tsunami in Asia, researchers attempted to explain reports that aboriginal tribesmen had 'sensed' the danger in time to flee to higher ground.
Although some researchers dispute the existence of a "sixth sense" for danger, research from Washington University in St. Louis has found a region of the brain that serves as an "early warning system" -- monitoring environmental cues and helping to change our behavior to avoid danger.

"Our brains are better at picking up subtle warning signs than we previously thought," said Joshua Brown, a research associate in psychology and co-author of a study on these findings in the Feb. 18 issue of the journal Science.
