The Rockefeller University Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior
“The overall goal of work in our laboratory is to understand how complex behaviors are modulated by external chemosensory cues and internal physiological states.”
How does the sense of smell work?
“Smell is a very direct sense. In order for you to smell something, molecules from that thing have to make it to your nose.”
How Smell Works
“A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people’s moods and even affect their work performance.”
