Galbanum in der Naturalis Historia

De galbano diximus. neque umidum neque aridum probatur et quale docuimus. per se bibitur ad tussim veterem, suspiria, rupta, convulsa, inponitur ischiadicis, lateris doloribus, panis, furunculis, corpori ab ossibus recedenti, strumis, articulorum nodis, dentium quoque doloribus. inlinitur et cum melle capitis ulceribus. purulentis infunditur auribus cum rosaceo aut nardo. odore comitialibus subvenit et vulva strangulante vel in stomachi defectu. abortus non exeuntes trahit adpositu vel suffitu, item ramo hellebori circumlitum atque subiectum. serpentes nidore urentium fugari diximus. fugiunt et perunctos galbano. medetur et a scorpione percussis. bibitur et in difficili partu gabae magnitudine in cyatho vini, vulvasque conversas corrigit, cum murra autem et vino mortuos partus extrahit. adversatur et venenis, maxime toxicis, cum murra et vino.

Gaius Plinius Secundus, 77-78 p.Ch.n.

The Jacobson’s organ, also known as the vomeronasal organ (VNO), is part of the olfactory system. It corresponds to the olfactory pits of fish. During human fetal growth the organ evolves and involves before birth. Whether the VNO still fulfills functions in human perception after birth is considered controversial. In the case of the cat the entrance to Jacobson’s organ can be seen on the palate behind the incisors. Continue reading “Jacobson’s organ”

“It is widely believed that people are bad at naming odors. This has led researchers to suggest smell representations are simply not accessible to the language centers of the brain.
