Developing an Olfactory Vocabulary: Sun May 15, 10am-12pm (Members)
Studies have shown that smells are the hardest to describe. All of our senses — except smell — send information they collect through the thalamus. Aromas bypass the thalamus entirely. They go from the olfactory bulb to part of the amygdala. The amygdala is crucial for processing long-term memories and some aspects of emotion. So, our sense of smell is uniquely tied to our memories and emotions but is more separated from our words than the other senses. In this class we will learn to develop our olfactory vocabulary. 

NOTE: Please do not wear any scented products to class. Preregistration with payment is required by Thursday, May 12.
