Scent and Sensibility: The Neuroscience of Fragrance

The importance of olfaction to the understanding of emotional processes still needs to reach out to other areas of research. The aim of the conference is to make the state of the art research in neuroscience and psychology concerning the emotional and communicative impact of natural and manufactured fragrances available to both researchers and practitioners.
The conference will be followed by a special event on new olfactory designs and the most innovative use of fragrance.
