    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...

    ..We suggest that this effect originates from learned associations, including greater cautiousness and concomitant changes in cognitive strategies...

    Psychology Department, Rice University, Houston, Texas 77005, USA
    J Neurosci 28:14416-21. 2008

    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...

  1. Chemosensory Communication of Emotion in Humans
    Denise 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. ..
