About 14% could name just 3, 5% percent could identify only 2, and 2% could name just 1. One percent of the study subjects were not able to identify a single scent.

Many people with schizophrenia have trouble with learning and memory. A new study has found intriguing links between sleep, cognition and a compound called kynurenine.
