The act of sniffing increases the air velocity and changes the duration of airflow in the nose. It is not yet clear how these changes interact with the intrinsic timing within the olfactory bulb, but this is a matter of current research activity. An action of sniffing in generating a high velocity that alters the sorption of odorants onto the lining of the nasal cavity is expected from the established work on odorant properties and sorption in the frog nose. Recent work indicates that the… CONTINUE READING
