Memory: Fragrant Flashbacks Opens September 16

What smells spark a memory for you? What would you remember from the smell of freshly baked cookies, or maybe the first rain after a long, dry summer? Understand how we acquire, consolidate, and retrieve our memories and why those associated with smell are different in our next exhibit installment Memory: Fragrant Flashbacks. Opening in The Portal to Current Research on September 16, uncover the hidden connection between odor and emotional response. Test out the Smell Synthesizer to create more than 500,000 unique scents. Don't miss the fourth and final installment of the Memory series, funded by a generous grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
