THE MYSTERIES OF THE OLFACTION: HOW DOES OUR ODORAT INFLUENCE OUR BRAIN?
Our nose could perceive up to 1000 billion odors! Perfumes attract us, repel us, calm us or excite us. The connection with our emotions and our long-term memory is obvious. But how does the sense of smell work? What is the mechanics of smells and how does it project into our emotional sphere? We will stimulate our sense of smell, compare our performances and see how to “measure” an olfactory emotion on a willing guinea pig!
