Most people tend to ignore the fact that it is food that makes us who we are and pheromones that tell others who and what we are
Loss of eyes associated with increased chemosensory abilities leads to a hypothesis of increased tactile sensitivity for food choice and mate choice.
Changes in food availability, food type, or the way you get food can trigger evolutionary mechanisms to deal with those changes. The result can be increased brain size and cognition, changes in locomotion and even social changes

It’s been more than 2 decades since the work of Axel and Buck replaced the ridiculous misrepresentations of those who appear to have never once thought about olfaction for finding food in birds.
Earlier this year I addressed the commonalities and the adaptive evolution of differences in systems-level and behavioral responses in the context of the FDA Critical Path Initiative and ASAM policy statement.
Attempts to discuss the role of nutrient chemicals and pheromones in cognitive neuroscience discussion groups have met with outright hostility. So, let’s wait another week, month, or year until the convergence becomes perfectly clear.
…you can now compare the science that’s behind the claims, unless the claims others make are for undisclosed active ingredients that somehow cause this affect on behavior (e.g., increased affection).
What did the early ethologists think was responsible for nutrient acquisition in surviving avian species?
Nutrient chemicals in the ecological niche calibrate individual survival, and the nutrient chemicals metabolize to pheromones in the social niche, which standardize and control reproduction in all species.
