Smells are Emotional
The Brain's Role
Because the brain is so closely linked to the sense of smell, it is one of the strongest senses.
"The sensory cortex of the brain receives and interprets signals from our eyes, nose, ears, mouth and skin. The sensory cortex is divided into the primary and secondary cortex. The secondary sensory cortex is responsible for processing more complex information about a stimulus, such as distinguishing between different musical tones."
