the treatment with nutrient chemicals works as would treatment with pheromones, which are expected to alter the same hypothalamic neurogenic niche responsible for GnRH-directed changes in luteinizing hormone and hippocampal neurogenesis
A diet-reponsive neurogenic niche links nutrient chemical intake to receptor-mediated brain development in mammals. Glucose regulates the hormone secreting nerve cells in this niche, which links it and other nutrient chemicals to levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and brain development.
“When you see that at the cellular level, you realize that the brain can change because of experience.”
Who’s fooling who about human pheromones, sexual attraction, and who you can trust?
I was still somewhat surprised that the women reported they were more attracted to the man when he was wearing the androsterone/androstenol mix.
a mixture of androsterone and androstenol influences women’s flirtatious behaviors and increases their level of attraction
Our mixture characterizes species-specific human pheromones, their epigenetic effects on physiology, and their affect on behavior.
