  1. ncbi request reprint Sniffing and smelling: separate subsystems in the human olfactory cortex
    N Sobel
    Program in Neuroscience, Stanford University, California 94305, USA
    Nature 392:282-6. 1998
    ..The dissociation between regions activated by olfactory exploration (sniffing) and regions activated by olfactory content (smell) shows a distinction in brain organization in terms of human olfaction...

    ..08). These findings localize human brain activation that was induced by an undetectable air-borne chemical (the low concentration compound)...

    N Sobel
    Program in Neuroscience, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Chem Senses 25:1-8. 2000
    ..This finding implies that during each sniff, each nostril conveys to the brain a slightly different image of the olfactory world. It remains to be shown how the brain combines these images into a single olfactory percept...
  4. ncbi request reprint Dissociated neural representations of intensity and valence in human olfaction
    A K Anderson
    Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, 349 Mulford Hall, UC Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
    Nat Neurosci 6:196-202. 2003
    ..These findings show that distinct olfactory regions subserve the analysis of the degree and quality of olfactory stimulation, suggesting that the affective representations of intensity and valence draw upon dissociable neural substrates...

    C Zelano
    Program in Biophysics, University of California, Berkeley, 3210 Tolman Hall MC 1650, Berkeley, CA 94702, USA
    J Neurophysiol 97:1969-76. 2007
    ..Importantly, this was found when perceived intensity was held equal across odorants. These findings suggest that dissociable neural substrates subserve the encoding of irritation and valence in olfaction...

    N Sobel
    Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
    Neuron 31:512-4. 2001
    ..The specific regions activated combined with the pronounced sex difference depict a pheromonal-type brain response in humans. Here, we preview this finding and suggest that human pheromones exist...

    M Bensafi
    Department of Psychology and Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley 94720, USA
