Lonely traits and concomitant physiological processes: the MacArthur social neuroscience studies.
Psychological State and Mood Effects of Steroidal Chemosignals in Women and Men
We tested the hypothesis that isolated steroids, claimed to act like pheromones, affect human psychological state or mood. In the first experiment, we established that two steroids, Delta4,…
Menstrual Synchrony and Suppression

Synchrony and suppression among a group of women living together in a college dormitory suggest that social interaction can have a strong effect on the menstrual cycle.
Paternally inherited HLA alleles are associated with women's choice of male odor
It is shown that women can detect differences of one HLA allele among male odor donors with different MHC genotypes, and data indicate that paternally inherited HLA-associated odors influence odor preference and may serve as social cues.
Context-dependent effects of steroid chemosignals on human physiology and mood
Regulation of ovulation by human pheromones
By showing in a fully controlled experiment that the timing of ovulation can be manipulated, this study provides definitive evidence of human pheromones.

An emotional trait in infancy that predicts an early death and an associated neuroendocrine trait in adulthood that is a potential mechanism underlying the relationship between behavioral style and longevity are identified.

A novel noninvasive method is presented to precisely pinpoint the preovulatory surge of Luteinizing Hormone (LH), demarcating hormonally distinct cycle phases with greater than 95% reliability and proposing the term “sexual phase” of the cycle.

This study demonstrates that Δ4,16-androstadien-3-one (androstenone) alters cerebral glucose utilization both in subcortical regions and in areas of the neocortex not exclusively associated with olfaction.
