Current Research in my lab

proboscis monkey Olfactory function in humans
How and why do we smell? We record the function of the human olfactory system using electrodes placed around the bridge of the nose. Good for objective smell tests and many other applications.

Smell perception. We are studying the physiological vs. psychological response to odours. Are good & bad odours rated differently by the brain?

Can smell be used therapeutically (Oct 2013)? Smell certainly affects us, but, can we take therapeutic, or even, medical advantage of this? We think so and are currently conducting research to prove it.
