Episode 34 of the Brain Science Podcast is an interview with Rachel Herz author of "The Scent of Desire: Discovering Our Enigmatic Sense of Smell."
Dr. Herz teaches at Brown University and is a leading authority on the psychology of smell. We talk about the how smell works, its role in emotion and memory, why it is so vulnerable, and why smell is much more important than most of us realize. We also consider some of the questions that remain unanswered.
