Abstract

There is a connection between endocrine and olfactory systems (a relation that is fundamental for pheromone communication in animals). Stricker and her team demonstrated that even in Man some relation exists between histocompatibility antigens and olfactory perception. The finding that humans can communicate by pheromones opens many possibilities to future investigation. Human pheromones might be used to interact with interpersonal information or more simply as a natural, alternative to control ovulation timing or as an aid to contraception. The researches the article confirm the strong interactions between olfactory, endocrine and reproductive systems described in. Once the relationship between olfactory and hormonal system is accepted it is easier to understand and recognize social interactive phenomena on reproductive physiology.
