One of these research programmes is “Our unique sense of smell”, led by Professor Maria Larsson at the Department of Psychology, Stockholm University, which is awarded a grant of SEK 26 million.

Together with nine internationally established experts in different areas of olfactory research, she and her colleagues at Stockholm University will gain new knowledge about the human sense of smell. For example, they will investigate the relationship between odours and language, olfactory sensations in dreams, and the link between olfactory loss and dementia.
