  • Here comes your footer Page 2 combine? Flavor = smell + taste Chemical senses are - -
  • Slide 3
  • Here comes your footer Page 3 Olfactory system Menstrual synchrony Pheromones Anosmia Detection threshold Yes/no procedure -trials with odors along with blank trials -This can result in bias Forced-choice -one with odorant and one without -Participant indicates which smells strongest

  • Slide 6
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality Olfactory mucosa is located at the top of the nasal cavity. -Odorants come in contact with the olfactory receptor neurons (ORN). Page 6
  • Slide 7
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality (olfactory receptor neurons, ORN) -Contains olfactory receptors -350 receptors (note: only 4 visual pigments) -But, only one olfactory receptor for one ORN Page 7
  • Slide 8
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality (olfactory receptor neurons, ORN) -Recognition profile ( Page 8
  • Slide 9

  • Slide 10
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality Olfactory bulb -ORNs of a particular type send their signals to one or two glomeruli -How do the glomeruli respond to different odorants? -Optical imaging Page 10
  • Slide 11
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality Olfactory bulb -Uchida (2000) - Page 11
  • Slide 12
  • Neural codes for olfactory quality Olfactory bulb - - hardwired response? e.g. cat odor Page 12
  • Slide 13
  • Higher Level Olfactory Processing Signals from the olfactory bulb are sent to -primary olfactory (piriform) cortex in the temporal lobe and amygdala. -Amygdala plays a role in emotional reactions to odors. -(then to) secondary olfactory (orbitofrontal) cortex in the frontal lobe.

  • Here comes your footer Page 18 Higher order olfactory processing de Araujo et al. People were exposed to a mixture of a sweat-like smell and a cheddar cheese flavoring. On some trials, they saw the label cheddar cheese, and on others, the label body odor. Pleasantness ratings were higher for the cheddar cheese trials. fMRI scans showed activity in the orbitofrontal cortex to be associated with the pleasantness ratings.
