https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20627560.500-sniff-at-pheromones.html I hope that Dr. Richard L. Doty will someday tell us who agrees with his concept of mammalian pheromones, and if anyone else agrees […]
Dr. Richard L Doty misrepresents the truth about pheromones as he redefines the term in an attempt to convince others that mammalian pheromones do not exist. The truth is that no sensory stimulus from the social environment (e.g, an environment containing other members of the same species) determines anything about mammalian behavior in an invariant way.
What effect on the brain motivates us when we see food, or a potential mate?
I acknowledge your evolutionary theory (ies), no matter how ridiculous they seem. I don’t know why you refuse to acknowledge biological facts — unless you simply cannot understand the difference between theories and facts.
From an evolutionary perspective, all measures of visual appeal obfuscate the only real measure of physical appeal across species: olfactory/pheromonal cues of reproductive fitness.
I have elsewhere attempted to partially detail the involvement of DHEA metabolism in the production of species-specific human pheromones, but these details remain speculative.
…using Doty’s logic, how can we say we are visually attracted to the visually appealing physical features of other people when we don’t know what features elicit our response or how they elicit any endocrine or behavioral response?
