I have always been interested in the sense of smell as well as other senses such as taste . When doing an Open university course in psychology at a summer school we were divided into groups of five and each group had to think up experiments I decided to experiment whether if a person agrees to be blind folded and set up to eat all the different flavours of crisps would they be able to identify the taste . Twenty subjects agreed to participate not one of them identified the crisp flavours correctly. Therefore it was obvious that our sense of taste can be affected by our sense of sight . This article is so interesting The fact a dog is able to know when the owner is coming home is good to know .My little Yorkshire Terrier I am sure is aware when my daughter and family are about to visit and perhaps that is because they look after her when I need them too

We don’t smell our home because we have become nose blind to them.
