“Instinct is the nose of the mind.” —Delphine de Girardin


Sense About Scents

Neuro-associative conditioning is a process by which you purposefully link a scent with an emotional state. The hippocampus, part of a network called the limbic system and one of the most studied parts of the brain, is associated with the processes of feelings and reacting. The hippocampus is where short-term memories turn into long-term memories. Our sense of smell invokes a range of emotions that ties us to yesterday’s past or to our present situation in either clear or very subtle ways.
