Time Presentations and Demos

“The Elixir of Love -
How Fragrance and Chocolate Seduce the Soul”

What smells and tastes arouse instincts which, throughout history, have inspired poetry, prose and provoked “dangerous liaisons"! In this fun & interactive presentation we will explore the implications of scent and taste with the
sensual use of  "stimulants" in perfume and chocolate.

“Your Scrubber is My Holy Grail: Individual Differences in Olfaction”:

This interactive presentation will explore the genetic, neurobiological, and psychological basis of why each individual perceives the same perfume differently. It will cover basic information on olfactory receptors and specific anosmias, the ways in which olfactory information is represented in the brain, and the cognitive factors that determine how we organize and interpret that information. Some of the scents that are used as examples will be made available for sniffing and discussion.
