How's your sense of smell? I think mine is pretty good Having said that, I'm not so it helps me find my way as some scientists suggest,
No question that a good sense of smell is handy, especially if there's a fire, or a gas leak, but could it really help if ,say, you were lost while hiking?
The Daily Mail Reports that researchers from McGill University in Canada tested the sense of smell and sense of direction of 57 volunteers using MRI scans. The researchers found increased thickness in two areas of the brain predicted a volunteer would have both a better sense of smell and a better sense of direction.
So while my sense of direction isn't the best, just bake a fresh plate homemade chocolate chip cookies and I'll follow my nose and find my way home for sure!
