The Limbic System Scents Lab: Scent Tests


 

 

Essential Oils compounds can be chemically modified and their effects on the cognitives processes studied using fMRI. To create new compounds from existing ones, organic chemistry has several molecules which catalyze the process. We tried two of them, using strong alkali and iron sulfate as catalyzer, and performed IRTF (shown below) and GC-MS analysis.

Resulting compounds were tested using fMRI, and the results were similar to those previously shown here.
