- The effect of emotion and personality on olfactory perceptionDenise Chen
Psychology Department, Rice University, 6100 Main St, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Chem Senses 30:345-51. 2005..Finally, current emotional state augmented intensity in men but not in women, and differentially influenced the response time. These findings provided new insights into the effects of emotion and personality on olfactory perception...
- Chemosignals of fear enhance cognitive performance in humansDenise Chen
Psychology Department MS 25, Rice University, 6100 Main Street, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Chem Senses 31:415-23. 2006..We suggest that this effect originates from learned associations, including greater cautiousness and concomitant changes in cognitive strategies...
- Sociochemosensory and emotional functions: behavioral evidence for shared mechanismsWen Zhou
Rice University, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Psychol Sci 20:1118-24. 2009..Our results provide the first behavioral evidence for mechanisms being shared by a sensory system and emotion...
- Encoding human sexual chemosensory cues in the orbitofrontal and fusiform corticesWen Zhou
Psychology Department, Rice University, Houston, Texas 77005, USA
J Neurosci 28:14416-21. 2008..Our findings provide neural evidence that socioemotional meanings, including the sexual ones, are conveyed in the human sweat...
- Binaral rivalry between the nostrils and in the cortexWen Zhou
Department of Psychology, MS 25, Rice University, 6100 Main Street, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Curr Biol 19:1561-5. 2009..This binaral rivalry involves both cortical and peripheral (olfactory receptor) adaptations. Our discovery opens up new avenues to explore the workings of the olfactory system and olfactory awareness...

- Chemosensory Communication of Emotion in HumansDenise Chen; Fiscal Year: 2005..It opens up the possibility that olfactory deficit, often conceptualized as a sensory process, may have a more direct social basis and link to mental health (affective disorder) than is currently appreciated. ..
