The vomeronasal organ

Not only in DNA’s hands: Epigenetics has large say in blood formation

The vomeronasal organ (the pheromone receptor organ) is thus nonfunctional in human adults. Other decisive arguments back up this conclusion. The genes coding for V1R-type receptor proteins are mostly deactivated by mutation: only five sequences remain in the human genome (whereas mice have more than 180!); the same is true for those coding for V2R-type receptor proteins. Moreover, the genes coding for the trpc2 channels, essential to vomeronasal neuron activation, are again pseudogenes unable to give rise to functional ion channels. These features are shared by New World monkeys and marine mammals. Finally, on histologic examination of the olfactory bulbs in humans and New World monkeys, the accessory olfactory bulbs are found to be absent

The complaint: “Thus spammer JVK – James V Kohl is a con man. The product you peddle, “scent of Eros” is snake oil.”

My response: Processing by the main olfactory system of chemosignals that facilitate mammalian reproduction https://www.scienc…14001196

The article was published in the same journal as our 1996 review. Eighteen years later, “The literature reviewed here documents the essential role of the main olfactory system in the pheromonal facilitation of neuroendocrine and behavioral aspects of reproduction…” as detailed in our award-winning 2001 Neuroendocrinology Letters review: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology https://www.nel.ed…view.htm

Does everyone agree that if ignorant people don’t hate you, you’re probably not telling them about anything they need to learn?

About James V. Kohl 1308 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.
