What objects improve smell perception?


The research field dedicated to improving smell perception has had significant advancements in digitizing smells. Dr. Noam Sobel, a guest on the , explained that they have been working on developing a set of rules that link the structure of an odor to how it is perceived by humans. This research aims to predict how a novel molecular mixture will smell based on its structure, which has been a challenging issue until recently. This field has seen a renaissance, particularly propelled by increased awareness of the importance of olfaction due to the COVID-19 pandemic 1.
