Get in touch with your sense of smell. This invitation comes from the Sense of Smell Institute, which aims to spotlight the importance of smell in human psychology, behavior, and quality of life. The institute’s Web site offers a report addressing what would happen if you were to lose your sense of smell. The site also provides access to research and resources devoted to various aspects of the science of olfaction. National Sense of Smell Day, celebrated at several museums and science centers across the United States, occurs on April 17.
