Induction of olfactory sensitivity in humans was first illustrated when men and women who were initially unable to smell the volatile steroid androstenone (5alpha-androst-16-en-3-one) developed that ability after repeated, brief exposures. Because this finding has not been replicated with other compounds in humans, it has been assumed that olfactory(More)
The chemical senses may represent the most fundamental integrative sensory modalities. For example, flavor perception is widely considered to be an integrative process whereby two distinct neural systems (olfactory and gustatory) are activated peripherally to give rise to a unitary oral sensation of flavor. Benefits of multimodal sensory integration in(More)
In one reported instance of induced olfactory sensitivity, men and women who were initially unable to smell androstenone (5-α-androst-16-en-3-one) developed that ability after repeated exposures (Wysocki et al., 1989). This phenomenon has been believed to occur only for odorants to which participants have specific anosmia and possibly specific to the(More)
Multiple sense modalities can be stimulated conjointly by a physically complex item, such as a predator, and also by a physically solitary stimulus that acts on multiple receptor classes. As a prime example of this latter group, l-menthol from mint stimulates taste, smell, and several somatosensory submodalities. In 6 experiments that used a variety of(More)
