The brain is broadly wired for reproduction

...romones -- from the vomeronasal organ (VNO) in the nasal septum. However, the systems are not entirely parallel. Buck and her colleagues have shown that the VNO can detect some odorants. And conversely, there is evidence that some pheromone signals require input from the nose in addition to the VNO. "Our ...

Olfactory system detects pheromones that control reproduction

...nasal organ (VNO). Although the VNO resides in the nasal cavity, the pheromone sensory system is distinct from the sense of smell, as are the chemical receptors involved. In animals possessing a pheromone sensory system -- including mice, dogs, cats, and elephants -- the system governs a range of genetical...

New study examines how sense of smell affects mating and aggression in mice
