Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells

...ng to the researchers, it's as if the brain has to listen to each musician's melody to hear a symphony. Humans may rely on the same smell decoding system, because mice and men have similar brain structures for scent, including an olfactory bulb, the researchers said. "We wanted to understand how the brain...

Funding and bureaucracy, not access to journals, are chief obstacles to scientific productivity
