The present investigation explores the stimulus-response (psychophysical) functions for total nasal perceived intensity for two pungent odorants, formaldehyde and ammonia, presented either alone or with different backgrounds of the other irritant. Stimuli were comprised of four formaldehyde concentrations (1.0, 3.5, 6.9 and 16.7 p.p.m.); four ammonia concentrations (210, 776, 1172 and 1716 p.p.m.); and their 16 binary mixtures. Ammonia functions showed a consistent upward concavity. At low… CONTINUE READING
