    Abstract : In the present thesis, three empirical studies investigate autobiographical odor memory with regard to: (a) whole life-span age distributions, (b) phenomenological experience, (c) semantic processing, and (d) odor imagery.

  2. 2. Olfactory Metacognition A Metamemory Perspective on Odor Naming

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Although many aspects of odor naming have received attention during the years, the participants' own cognitions (metamemory) about their naming attempts have not.
