4.0 out of 5 stars The Richard Axel segment November 28, 2007
Nobel Prize winner Richard Axel talks with Charlie Rose about his work in sensory- perception, most specifically with the olfactory sense. He informs us that for most animals the sense of smell is their predominant means for knowing reality. He points to the large share of genes given to the olfactory sense in a number of mammals. He indicates that while we may associate this sense strongly with Memory it also has important function in realtion to knowing our own reality. He speaks about the part the sense of smell has in sexual attractiveness, but refuses to go so far as to say that we choose the one we wish to love primarily on the basis of their 'smell'.
