Jasper de Groot is giving his presentation on how the research has shown that human odors can convey information about a range of states (e.g., emotions, sickness) and traits (e.g., individuality, gender).
Without us even being aware our bodies silently communicate with each other. We can communicate through our body odours, pheromones and even with odorless molecules. We transmit information about fertility, gender, age and - according the latest research - our emotional state as well. However, the topic of body odours is still taboo for many.
