The Smell Experience Project
|Goal||Help researchers understand changes in the sense of smell.|
|Task||Submit your own story of a change in your sense of smell.|
The Smell Experience Project is collecting stories from people who have experienced a significant change in their sense of smell.
Changes in odor perception can be a symptom of a condition, such as depression, head injury, dementia, or allergies, or a side effect of medication. Because the changes are subjective and difficult to measure, medical professionals often do not ask patients about changes in their sense of smell. As a result, there is little documented information about these changes. Smell Experience Researchers need your help to better understand changes in our sense of smell.
|How to Join||
Submit your story here: http://psych-institute.med.nyu.edu/research/story-submit-form.
The Smell Experience Project asks that you include details about how long the changes lasted, what kind of odors were affected, etc. Please do NOT include your name, email address, or any other identifying information.
