  • The science of smell: how the nose senses odor - The olfactory system determines how we perceive fragrances and other odors, and also provides neuroanatomical pathways by which odorous compounds affect our memory and emotions. In the nose, odorants bind to an extremely large family of receptors. This binding event initiates a cascade of molecular events culminating in the detection and recognition of an odor by the brain. An independent chemical sensor, the vomeronasal organ, also functions to modulate sexual and aggressive behavior in many animals. The presence of this organ in humans suggests that airborne chemicals may be able to influence human behaviors.
