Odors, pheromones

Categories: Nonverbal Categories

A growing body of research indicates that odors can condition motions and subsequently influence behavior.
This happens becouse odors and emotions are processed in similar brain structures.
Moreover, odor-evoked memories may seem clearer or more intense than other memories because they appear to be more emotional than memories triggered by visual, audio or other types of cues.
A special class of volatile molecules, as odors, are pheromones; these compounds are chemicals that triggers an innate behavioural response in another member of the same species;
Recently, scientist found that even human pheromones affect the sexual attractiveness of men to women and vice versa.
