Human Olfaction: It Takes Two Villages
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology, Perception and psychophysics. New York University School of Medicine, USA.
2018 (English)In: Current Biology, ISSN 0960-9822, E-ISSN 1879-0445, Vol. 28, no 3, p. R108-R110Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Human olfaction is sensitive but poorly encoded by language. A new study comparing horticulturalists and hunter-gatherers suggests that the strength of odor language is dependent on life-style. This work may stimulate olfactory research at the crossroads between biology and culture.
