Scent, Sensors and the Expanded Realm of Sensation, a panel presented as part of the one-day symposium, Headspace: On Scent as Design, featured Majora Carter, founder of Majora Carter Group and Sustainable South Bronx; Leslie B. Vosshall, Head of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics and Behavior at The Rockefeller University; Susana Soares, Senior Lecturer at London South Bank University; and Dr. C. William Hanson, III, Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Moderated by Adam Bly, founder and CEO of Seed, the talk traversed such wide olfactory terrain as the how to best deodorize the Bronx, the process of creating and interpreting scent and how smell helps orient--or disorient--us from ourselves and our environments.
