To accommodate a lifetime of scents and aromas, mammals have hundreds of genes that each produce a different odorant receptor. The complex and diverse olfactory system they build remains adaptable, but a new study in the journal Science shows that the system's flexibility, or plasticity, has its limits. Working in mice, Brown University scientists found that the fundamental neural wiring map between the nose and the brain becomes established in a critical period of early development and then...

Stowers investigators reveal a developmental switch in targeting capacity of olfactory neurons The human nose expresses nearly 400 odorant receptors, which allow us to distinguish a large number of scents. In mice the number of odor receptors is closer to 1000. Each olfactory neuron displays only a single type of receptor and all neurons with the same receptors are connected to the same spot, a glomerulus, in the brain. This convergence, or wiring pattern, is often described as an...

Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology Odorant receptors of recent insects evolved long after insects migrated from water to land. An insect’s sense of smell is vital to its survival. Only if it can trace even tiny amounts of odor molecules is it is able to find food sources, communicate with conspecifics, or avoid enemies. According to scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, many proteins involved in the highly sensitive odor perception of insects emerged...

2014-03-18 05:21:38

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A deer hunter's worst enemy is body odor because it alerts prey animals that a predator is near. The science behind suppressing body odor to give hunters an edge, however, could help researchers develop a life-saving device for diabetes patients, according to a study presented at the 247th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) this week. "The scent of a single person is a complex mixture of hundreds...

Nose
2013-03-05 14:47:26

The nose is the organ that extends outward in the middle of the face between the eyes and mouth. Formation and Orientation The shape and look of the nose is dependent on the ethmoid bone and the nasal septum which is the cartilage that separates the two nostrils. The evolutionary hypotheses of nose development in humans propose that noses are alterations of the angles of the skull because of bipedalism. Because of the change in diet that has come with modern time and the change of...
