Our nose is better than we think


The nasal cavity receptors move the odor through a complex nerve process to the brain's olfactory center, whose analytical work can decide whether or not a food can be eaten, for example.

According to a study by an American research group a year ago, this sense organ still works much better than we think.
In their study published in the journal Neuron Cm, experts note that olfactory sensation is the oldest. Recent studies have shown that not only highly sensitive nose animals, such as dogs, but also humans' nose absorb much more external scent than is consciously present.

Smell is one of our earliest sensors

Diego Restropo And his team has been working on odor sensation and nervous processing in the senses for years. "We know a little about our sense of smell, and the more we find out, the more complexity is," Professor Restropo said.
The olfactory organ is fully functional at the moment and remains so - as opposed to our other sense organs. This is due to the fact that the sensory cells in our nose usually die every two months, and they are punctured by new cells.
The research group first experimented with mice. It has been shown that as opposed to the other sensory organs, the impulses from the olfactory bulb to the brain are placed in a single focal point, the thalamus, and the olfactory center is the significance of saging. Sages, pheromones, which play an important role in the animal world, are also active in humans, even if they are unaware.
"The sense of smell is an ancient sensation that is basically just like the brain, like the rest of the senses," said the researchers. Women's lightness does not smell or smell, but men will keep it, even if they are not sensed by other senses. It has been shown that men's testosterone levels decrease immediately and significantly.
I was told that hearing and smelling the blind is more sensitive than seeing people. Numerous tests have proven that the nose or eyelid do not function better than their eyes, but learn how to concentrate on their sensory stimuli.

The sense of smell is so important to a baby that he or she uses his or her first nose for milking. The glands around the mother's nipple produce a scent similar to that of the amniotic fluid, which guides the baby to the breast. Sensitivity to the nose can also cause difficulties: the mother's unknown perfume, deodorant or strong scent of rinse aid may prevent the baby from breastfeeding.
