Pheromones and unconscious affects

Conducting a Field Test on Pheromones

Excerpt: “…my pheromonal research suggests that any individual who is looking to elicit increased affection from women should 1) ask them what they’re reading 2) offer a compliment and 3) spill a bowl of soup on him or herself.”

My comment: This is the type of reporting (in the NY Times) that helps to ensure the US educational system will continue to raise another generation of biologically uninformed science idiots. For contrast, see how others report on models of biologically based cause and effect that is RNA-mediated.

Focus: How Anesthesia Switches Off Consciousness

“It is intriguing that a simple model within the traditional percolation theory framework, with a single parameter related to network connectivity, can account for several features of brain dynamics under anesthesia,” says Plamen Ivanov of Boston University.

1) Turin’s group and 2) Di Cosmo’s group link everything known to serious scientists about the links from chemical ecology to ecoloigal, social, neuogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction via biophysically constrained protein folding chemistry and RNA-mediated events in species from octopuses to insects and humans.

Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model.

Excerpt: “THIS MODEL DETAILS HOW CHEMICAL ECOLOGY DRIVES ADAPTIVE EVOLUTION VIA: (1) ecological niche construction, (2) social niche construction, (3) neurogenic niche construction, and (4) socio-cognitive niche construction. This model exemplifies the epigenetic effects of olfactory/pheromonal conditioning, which alters genetically predisposed, nutrient-dependent, hormone-driven mammalian behavior …”

About James V. Kohl 1307 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
