He also explains how we can train our sense of smell if it has deteriorated or disappeared due to a disease such as COVID-19.
In this live-streamed conversation, you will learn how our sense of smell works, with the help of Johan Lundström, researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet.
