  3. 3. Auditory and Olfactory Abilities in Blind and Sighted Individuals More Similarities than Differences

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

    Author : Stina Cornell Kärnekull; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]

  4. 4. Human olfaction Associations with longitudinal assessment of episodic memory, dementia, and mortality risk

    Abstract : A declining sense of smell is a common feature in older age. Above and beyond diminished smelling capacity due to normal processes of human aging, impairments in olfactory function have also been linked to numerous ill-health related outcomes, such as cognitive dysfunctions, dementia pathology and even an increased risk of death.

  5. 5. Subliminal or not? An appraisal of semantic processing in the near absence of visual awareness

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm University
