    Quite interesting, indeed.

    Neural adaptation, the desensitizing to odors, what I would have termed olfactory fatigue, was illuminating, as well as the theory of scent associations of odors via our limbic system, which reinforced a theory I have held.

    Thanks for the remarkable, informative link.

    Perhaps, this Thread should be combined with the other, existing Thread in the Off topic Forum http://www.basenotes.net/threads/314...ry-facts-VIDEO

    In any event, it is quite interesting, indeed.

    Very interesting, however I already knew that one of my nostrils takes in less air than the other thanks to a Glasgow Kiss I got in Edinburgh.

    Apropos nostrils. A colleague had a blocked one for years. She got a sinus op and they found a tiddlywink in it!
