When the Nose Knows Not ... at Next Clarkson University Science Cafe

"When the Nose Knows Not ..." will be presented by St. Lawrence University Biology Professor David Hornung at the next Science Café on Tuesday, February 4, at 7:15 p.m. in the Park View Common Room, above the Blackbird Cafe, 107 Main St. in Canton, and on Wednesday, February 5, at 7:15 p.m. in the Potsdam Civic Center Community Room in Potsdam, N.Y.

David HornungWhen the sense of smell is lost, people worry about detecting smoke or bad odors, food does not taste right and the more subtle aspects of life are missing.

Join Hornung as he discusses smell disorders, their diagnosis and treatment, and their effect on our lives.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
