Last quote by John McGann

Human smell is not the same and dogs or rodents, but it's clearly not notably worse. If you restrict testing to traditional, volatile odours, then dogs and humans stack up pretty well against each other.feedback

He's under pressure for humans to be special. There's a terrible shortage of data supporting that humans can't do things. That's an experimental question that hasn't been done. The medical world just kind of shrugs. I'm hoping that by raising the profile of smell, maybe we'll get more traction for studying it.feedback

We're discovering, to our delight, that the human smell system is much better than we were led to believe. We're all trying to understand the same sensory world, so if you're a really big animal you might need to have more neurons devoted to touch because there are a lot of spaces you can touch on. But you don't necessarily need to smell more smells because you're bigger.feedback

We'd have two odours that mice couldn't tell apart, expecting humans wouldn't be able to, and they'd be like 'that's one and that's two'. It was amazing how good the human olfactory system was. We went to the medical school and looked at a human brain. We put the human bulb next to the mouse bulb and gasped. It was gigantic. Sniffing, to some extent, means 'I'm curious'. I have got down on my hands and knees in the park to track stuff. Try it in your yard, it's really quite impressive.feedback
