The human sensors have proved to be something quiet spectacular, in how our body can work out all these processes and interactions with the world around us, however what if I was to tell you that our body can identify chemical makeup of almost any object in the real world. This is possible with our sense of taste and smell, using the human nose and tongue which in many areas assist each other to create this.
Smelling, it’s the human body’s power of perceiving odours or scents by means of the organs in the nose it’s an amazing ability. Our sensation of taste is the just as amazing, as it perceives the flavours received in the mouth and throat on contact with a substance. Within in this presentation I hope to give you all the knowledge as to how the human sense works and how scientist and other research teams are developing technologies capable of replicating these human senses.
Smell works when vaporized odour molecules floating in the air reach the nostrils and dissolve in the mucus. Underneath the mucus, in the olfactory epithelium, specialized receptor cells called olfactory receptor neurons detect the odour. These neurons are capable of detecting thousands of different odours. The olfactory receptor neurons transmit the information to the olfactory bulbs, which are located at the back of the nose. The olfactory bulbs have sensory receptors that are actually part of the brain which send messages directly to the most primitive brain centres where they influence emotions and…
