Sniff out new discoveries! Secret Science Club is heading over to Symphony Space in Manhattan for a special event ...
Thursday, February 11, 7:30pm, Secret Science Club (North) presents Neuroscientist Leslie Vosshall @ Symphony Space, $20 (Shh… use code SECRET15 to get $15 tickets.)
Baking cookies. Smoke. Salty skin. The world is filled with smells suggesting danger, the presence of food—and mating opportunities. How many aromas can we detect? According to groundbreaking research by neuroscientist (and smell-ologist) Leslie Vosshall, humans can distinguish more than 1 trillion scents—far more than previously thought.
Dr. Vosshall has a passion for the sense of smell. As head of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior at Rockefeller University, she probes the brains, olfactory pathways, and DNA of creatures from fruit flies to Homo sapiens. She asks: Is love in the eye of the beholder—or in the schnoz? How do different animals detect smell and how do scents influence behavior?
