Baking cookies. Smoke. Salty skin
. The world is filled with smells suggesting danger, the presence of food—and mating opportunities
. How many aromas
can we detect? According to groundbreaking research by neuroscientist (and smell-ologist) Leslie Vosshall
, humans can distinguish more than 1 trillion scents—far more than previously thought.
Dr. Vosshall has a passion for the sense of smell. As head of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior at Rockefeller University, sheprobes the brains, olfactory pathways, and DNA of creatures from fruit flies to Homo sapiens. She asks: Is love in the eye of the beholder—or in the schnoz? How do different animals detect smell and how do scents influence behavior?

PLEASE CONTINUE by Frank Basloe
Yale, early 1960s. Professor Stanley Milgram’s “obedience experiments” test how cruel people can be when they are just following orders. Milgram gets the data he needs, but the lab assistant who conducted the experiment is left to grapple with his own responsibility. Weaving in a historically separate incident, playwright Frank Basloe dramatizes a campus scandal in order to burrow deeper into the ways conformity can push us to act against our conscience.
