Do You Smell What I Smell?

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A new study shows that small changes in a single olfactory receptor gene can affect how strong and pleasant a person finds an odor. The findings expand understanding of how olfactory receptors in the nose encode information about the properties of odors even before that information reaches the brain.

Smelling With Your Tongue

Monell Chemical Senses Center

Scientists from the Monell Center report that functional olfactory receptors are present in human taste cells. The findings suggest that interactions between the senses of smell and taste, the primary components of food flavor, may begin on the tongue and not in the brain, as previously thought.

Smelling in Tiny Houses: How Ciliary Electric Currents Keep Olfaction Reliable

Monell Chemical Senses Center

Scientists have used a combination of mathematical modeling, electrophysiology, and computer simulations to explain how cells communicate effectively in highly constricted spaces such as the olfactory cilia. The findings will inform future studies of cellular signaling in the olfactory system and other confined spaces of the nervous system.

Know Someone Sick? Your Own Smell Might Give It Away

Monell Chemical Senses Center

Research from the Monell Center extends the scope and significance of personal odors as a source of information about an individual’s health. A new paper reveals that the bodily odors of otherwise healthy animals sharing an environment with sick animals become like the odors of the sick animals.

A New Defender for Your Sense of Smell

Monell Chemical Senses Center

New research from the Monell Center suggests that a little-understood sensory cell may protect the vulnerable olfactory epithelium by detecting and initiating defenses against viruses, bacteria, and other potentially harmful invaders.

Busting Bitter, Saving Lives

Monell Chemical Senses Center

A new collaboration grant to Discovery BioMed and the Monell Center will support development of next-generation screening technologies to identify bitter taste blockers. The work will advance health by improving the taste and acceptability of nutritious plant-based foods and increasing patient willingness to take life-saving oral medicines.
