Människans luktperception

Mats J. Olssons Forskargrupp, The Human Olfaction Group, studerar det mänskliga luktsinnet och fokuserar på beteendemässiga effekter av kemoreception.

De övergripande målen för Mats J. Olssons grupp är att beskriva hur vi bearbeter olika luktämnen perceptuellt, kognitivt och emotionellt. Dessutom undersökers hur kroppslukt, eller element däruti, kan kommunicera information mellan människor.

Forskningsprojekt

  • Kan man med luktsinnet identifiera en gärningsman?
  • Hur integreras luktande molekyler till en samfälld lukt?
  • Kan vi med luktsinnet känna av om någon är sjuk?
