      The sense of smell plays a critical role in human behavior, from warning us of potential dangers to attracting us to certain foods, places, and people. Harvard scientists Catherine Dulac and Venkatesh Murthy study the molecules, cells, and brain circuits that underlie olfaction and the social behaviors that aromas can elicit. In this program, they will engage in a conversation with internationally recognized olfactive expert Dawn Goldworm to discuss how neurobiological research on olfaction relates to our everyday experiences.

      Advance registration is recommended. Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History in collaboration with the Harvard Brain Science Initiative.

      Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge. Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
