Beschreibung

The sense of smell is important in various areas including appreciation of foods and drinks, as a warning system (e.g. poisonous fumes), or as a social signal between humans, e.g. when crying or when developing an infection. The sense of smell has an impact on reproductive behaviour including inbreeding avoidance and mate selection, as well as emotional contagion. In this context, olfactory dysfunction is an increasingly recognised condition. However, the sense of smell remains relatively poorly researched and is often neglected by the scientific community. This may be due to the subtle effects of sense of smell on our behaviour. In this symposium we plan to show several aspects of olfaction, mostly in a clinical context.
