Blog Post #1 - Sense of Smell (Chapter 3)

Chapter 3 discusses the sense of smell in relation to retrieving memories, specifically how scent adds emotion to how you remember your life. I found this really interesting because I can associate certain memories with scents. Odor-induced memories can bring a person back to a specific time and context. Research shows that scents can make a memory seem more emotional too. I have a difficult time remembering my early childhood, but I can remember certain times from smells.

The only reason why I remember what happened during the blackout was because of the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon coming from the candle.
