OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESES In many species the vomeronasal organ (VNO) serves as a chemosensory organ in addition to the olfactory system. The present investigation was undertaken to study 1) the frequency of monolateral or bilateral detection of the putative VNO (pVNO) in humans, 2) its localization in humans, and 3) whether detectability of the pVNO varies with age or gender. STUDY DESIGN Prospective. METHODS A total of 173 subjects participated in this study (88 women and 85 men; age range, 2… CONTINUE READING
