Repetitive exposure to Androstadienone causes sensitisation to its odour
02-03-2016 9:48 AM

This may in part explain why men become increasingly sensitive to the side effects of Androstadienone over time. The other interesting result from the experiement is that women will find the smell of Androstadienone to become more unpleasant the more often you expose them to it.

Repetitive Olfactory Exposure to the Biologically Significant Steroid Androstadienone Causes a Hedonic Shift and Gender Dimorphic Changes in Olfactory-Evoked Potentials

Abstract

The function of a sensory system is to transduce and relay sensory information in a constant and reproducible manner. However, in the olfactory processing of certain steroids this precept of sensory constancy does not appear to apply. Using threshold testing, psychometrics, and electrophysiological techniques, we investigated the effects of a repetitive exposure protocol on the response to androstadienone. Androstadienone is a steroid found in human secretions that has been widely proposed as a candidate for a human pheromone. The detection threshold, hedonic perception, and evoked potential response all changed following repetitive exposure to androstadienone and not to a control odorant, benzaldehyde. Furthermore, the exposure-dependent changes in evoked potentials exhibited a gender dimorphism in which there were changes in the later components of the evoked potentials specific to women. These components have been associated with cognitive and perceptual operations. This 'learning' to smell a compound found in sweat may be related to biological signaling.

For me, it smells like rotten bananas since the day one.

Do you get depression when you smell rotten bananas? Lol

It would be much more helpful if they gave detailed infornation about specific respones. Yes many more people responded within the Putrid category but what does that really mean. Did they think it was fecal? Or urine? Those two are a far cry from sweaty or musky. IME many women love the smell of a sweaty, musky man. Urine and feces not so much.
