We wanted to see whether there was a difference between the male and female ability to recognize people through scent. We got 5 boys and 6 girls together and made them smell each other while blindfolded. As a side concentration, we asked the females whether they were menstruating or not to see whether that may have affected our results. rnOur results showed that females were able to recognize people through scent much better than males. The females who were ovulating had the best results overall.
