'Microsmatic' primates revisited: olfactory sensitivity in the squirrel monkey.
Using a conditioning paradigm, the olfactory sensitivity of three squirrel monkeys to nine odorants representing different chemical classes as well as members of a homologous series of substances wasExpand

Olfactory discrimination ability and odor structure-activity relationships in honeybees.
Using the training procedure introduced by von Frisch in 1919, we tested the ability of free-flying honeybees to discriminate a conditioning odor from an array of 44 simultaneously presentedExpand

Odor identification, consistency of label use, olfactory threshold and their relationships to odor memory over the human lifespan.
The purpose of this study was to investigate olfactory threshold, odor identification, consistency of label use and their relationships to odor memory in the context of semantic/episodic memoryExpand

Olfactory sensitivity for aliphatic alcohols and aldehydes in spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi).
Using a conditioning paradigm, the olfactory sensitivity of five spider monkeys for homologous series of aliphatic 1-alcohols (1-propanol to 1-octanol) and n-aldehydes (n-butanal to n-nonanal) wasExpand

Olfactory discrimination ability for aliphatic esters in squirrel monkeys and humans.
Using a behavioral paradigm designed to simulate olfactory-guided foraging, the ability of five squirrel monkeys to distinguish iso-amyl acetate from n- and iso-forms of other acetic esters (ethylExpand

Trigeminal perception of odorant quality in congenitally anosmic subjects.
Twenty congenitally anosmic subjects and 50 normosmic controls were tested for their ability (i) to assign verbal labels from a list of trigeminal-type descriptors to six odorants believed to have aExpand

Olfactory discrimination ability of human subjects for ten pairs of enantiomers.
We tested the ability of human subjects to distinguish between enantiomers, i.e. odorants which are identical except for chirality. In a forced-choice triangular test procedure 20 subjects wereExpand

Failure to demonstrate systematic changes in olfactory perception in the course of pregnancy: a longitudinal study.
Olfactory function was assessed in 20 women during each trimester of pregnancy and post partum, and compared with that of 20 non-pregnant women tested in parallel. In contrast to earlier reports, noExpand
