RE: Smell

The perception of smell is nothing more but molecules binding to chemoreceptors within the nose. The binding of volatile molecules to these chemoreceptors results in the a specific pattern of neuronic activation. Thus, a specific activation pattern of neurons is associated with a specific odor molecule.
