Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells

...hers have discovered how the brain creates a scent symphony from signals sent by the nose. In studies in mice, the researchers found that nerve cells in the brain's olfactory bulb -- the first stop for information from the nose -- do not perceive complex scent mixtures as single objects, such as the fragrance...
