Olfactory Cognition

Olfactory cognition involves perceptual, memorial, and decision processes based on odorants. Olfactory cognition research is lagging compared to other sensory modalities. As one example, there is no existing special issue on olfactory cognition in nonhumans. However, research spans a variety of species including insects, birds, dogs, and primates. Our goal for this Special Collection is to showcase the current diversity of research on olfactory cognition across species.

The Special Collection welcomes manuscripts on original research or a review of empirically-guided topics related to olfactory cognition. All submitted manuscripts will undergo full peer-review using the standards for a regular submission to Animal Cognition. To be considered for the Special Collection, please send a title, a 250-500 word abstract for the proposed manuscript, and a list of authors to Jeffrey S. Katz and Lucia Lazarowski by Feb 26, 2024. The deadline for manuscript submission, after successful proposal, is April 8, 2024.
