General description

Amyl acetate is an aliphatic ester that occurs naturally in banana fruit. It may be one of the odor volatiles produced by fungi such as Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium species.

Application

Amyl acetate is a fruity odor compound that can be used as an attractant (component) in nanoemulsion formulation used to trap fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster).
Banana essence. Used as test odorant in studies of olfactory function and in studies of the psychosocial effects of odor.

We showed recently that behavioural and striatal dopaminergic (DA) responses obtained in latent inhibition are crucially dependent on the parahippocampal region, the entorhinal cortex. In the present study, we investigated the influence exerted by the hippocampal ventral subicular region (SUB)...

There is increasing evidence that schizophrenia patients have difficulties in the hedonic appraisal of odors. In a prior study, we assessed olfactory hedonic perception birhinally and found that males with schizophrenia failed to attach the appropriate hedonic valence to a...

Despite aromatherapy's popularity, efficacy data are scant, and potential mechanisms are controversial.

In experimental practice, odors are commonly applied to only one nostril for recordings of olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs), but the lateralization aspect of the OERP response is unclear regarding both stimulated nostril and cortical topography. The purpose of the present...
