About This Event

Event Description:

DO you have a nose for research? In this experiment you have to guess scents blindfolded : fruit, tea, mint, but also the bouquet of stinky cheese, garlic and a cigarette butt. By naming the scents home and judging their valence, you prove that you are a good sniffer and that your brain is still working perfectly. A reduced odor recognition may indicate the onset of Alzheimer’s.
