Sold on the human VNO?

Posted on May 21, 2010 by jim.

Recent discoveries show that human pheromones are signals that are processed by cells in our main olfactory system. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17917120

Accordingly, as they do in all other mammals, pheromones activate the hypothalamus in humans. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19235878

Human pheromones cause behavior to change via their effects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus. http://senseofsmell.org/papers/Human_Pheromones_Final%207-15-09.pdf

Though it is widely reported to exist, the adult human vomeronasal organ (VNO) is not functional. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10531049; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11369678; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15470677

It contains few nerve cells and consists largely of epithelial cells, which means it has no sensory function. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4068105

Most cells of the adult human VNO express the protein markers of skin cells, not nerve cells. No cells have synaptic contacts, and there is no evidence that any nerve connects with the human VNO. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10944499; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12107500

Finally, no cells express the protein that is the primary indicator of mature olfactory nerve cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/336785

If you think you’ve found scientific support for misleading claims about a functional human VNO, look further and see what other researchers say in the links to the articles above.

These next few links are to articles that focus on research that apparently is supported by a woman who claims to be the co-discoverer of human pheromones based on the acclamations of television.

James Kohl owns Pheromones.com, and he has published books and award-winning research journal articles about human pheromones. With colleagues he was the first to show that a mixture of human pheromones increases the flirtatious behaviors of women, and increases their level of attraction to the man wearing the mixture - during a real-life social circumstance lasting 15 minutes.

What is the vomeronasal organ (VNO)?

The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a cone-shaped organ in the nasal cavity, which is believed to be one of the body's receptors of pheromones. More, specifically, the VNO, which is part of the accessory olfactory system in the nose, does not respond to normal scents, but may detect odorless, barely perceptible pheromones.

Other schools of thought believe that it is not the VNO but rather cells in our main olfactory system and their affects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus that are responsible for the affects of pheromones.

What are optimized pheromones?

Optimized pheromones are lab-certified pheromone formulations that have the optimum concentration of biologically active pheromones scientifically proven to produce behavior-altering results -- particularly as sexual attractants. Optimized pheromone formulations do not necessarily contain the maximum level of pheromones available on the market, but rather contain the greatest degree (and combination)of human pheromones that trigger a conditioned biological response in humans that, in turn, dictate their sexual behavior. Optimized pheromones also release neurotransmitters that directly modify the behavior of the opposite sex, such as triggering sexual excitement. For example:

Optimized pheromones for men are scientifically proven to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge elevates a woman's predisposition towards sexual activity.

Optimized pheromones for women are scientifically proven to bring about a biochemical surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This biochemical surge is what makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.
