What are peoples theories?
If our nerves send stronger more efficient faster signals; it could make us move faster, make us more smarter, more observant, and have sharper reflexes. This may result in pain receptors working harder; which would make us more sensitive to heat (the sun) and loud noises.
Blood gets transferred to the brain and muscles causing paleness and muscles to become strong
My Personal Opinion
I believe that Vampires do exist.
Firstly, There has been lots of stories; some of them could be true.
Secondly, The stories go back along time, and back then lots of people believed in them.
Finally, If our brain sends stronger and faster signals; it could make us like a vampire.
